Herbicides and Forestry: Topic Sheet

Herbicides control plants that compete with tree seedlings for water, sunlight and nutrients. They are typically applied only two to four times during the first few years of tree growth to help establish a new forest, with no further use until after the next timber harvest, in 40 to 80 years.

This publication is one in a series of forestry topic sheets being developed by OFRI.
