Methods of Application

Methods of ApplicationSelective and specific vegetation control management is necessary of plants, trees and other woody plants that commonly progress into pastures, fence rows, ditch banks, road rights-of-way, boundary line corridors, trails and other areas. These woody species require control since they will compromise fence integrity, impede canal drainage, interfere with transmission of electricity, and some species (such as cherry trees) which can be highly poisonous to livestock.

Accurate weed identification (annual, biennial or perennial) is important when choosing a control method, whether it be prevention, control or eradication. Removal and control of woody perennials can be difficult, but several techniques are available:

  • Mowing (generally provides only short-term success because it leaves live stumps and root-stocks that re-sprout)
  • Fire (can be tricky to manage and it is difficult to generate a fire with sufficient heat capacity to kill most hardwood species along fence rows, ditch banks and other sites with low plant density)
  • Herbicides (often the most effective and inexpensive means of controlling woody plants)

Some of the herbicide application techniques that can be used to control trees and brush of various sizes are:

  • Foliar application
  • Basal Bark application
  • Stump treatment
  • Soil application
