Pretty much every forest landowner has weeds. Some are temporary problems, such as controlling common weeds in a new tree planting. Others are long term, like keeping invasive species at bay in the woodland or a restoration area.

There are many approaches to vegetation management, beginning with keeping new weeds out, mechanical or physical controls such as mulching, mowing or pulling, and the use of herbicides. Many people use a mix of two or more of these approaches. 

This day-long workshop, will focus on control of grass and weeds with herbicides.  It will cover the basics of the safe and effective use of herbicides for grass and weed control (we will not address brush control), including relevant rules, key herbicides, how they work, and correct applications methods.  There will be some pre-work reading assigned before the workshop.

Instructors are Bruce Kelpsas and Brad Withrow-Robinson.
