As a result, many public land managers consider herbicides as socially unacceptable and are hesitant to use these tools to protect forest health and to insure forest sustainability. This project examines the risks & benefits of forest herbicide practices, as compared to other forest /   Chemical Herbicides and Their Uses in the Silviculture of Forests of Eastern Canada (Project H) by R. F. Suttonl INTRODUCTION The use of chemicals to eradicate unwanted woody vegetation is nvt new, as the method was being developed on quite an extensive scale in India and Australia at least as early as (Anon. ; Allan )

This publication examines the use of herbicides to manage forest vegetation and provides information to address some misconceptions concerning herbicide use in forests.

  A herbicide is a pesticide used to kill unwanted plants. Selective herbicides kill certain targets while leaving the desired crop relatively unharmed. Some of these act by interfering with the Herbicide use in the United States increased greatly from the mids through the mids, with a dip between and The usage increased in the s with being the highest-use year of herbicides in terms of millions of pounds of active ingredients applied to crops (Oregon State, ). Since the relatively widespread use of phenoxy herbicides (2,4-D and 2,4,5-T) in the s, the herbicide products available for forestry use have steadily evolved. Amitrole and organic arsenicals (MSMA, cacodylic acid) began to be used in the early s (Smith ); the organic arsenicals were the only means available at the time for ( In Poland, herbicides have the largest share (about 50%) in the sale of plant protection products, but the scale of their use in forests is small, compared to ://
