Description: When: May 31, 2018, 2-3 PM Eastern
Where: forestrywebinars.net


Herbicides are an important tool in both forest and wildlife management in the south and particularly in southern pine management. The common practice of heavy chemical site prep prescriptions in forest management may not be appropriate in stands where restoration and wildlife habitat is the objective. The webinar will address herbicide uses in longleaf restoration with a focus on minimizing the impact herbicides have on a healthy and diverse groundcover, including the fine fuels and plants that are beneficial to bobwhite quail, whitetail deer and the wild turkey.

Presenter: Ryan Mitchell, Outreach and Technical Assistance Coordinator, The Longleaf Alliance
