Trail spraying
« on: September 19, 2002, 05:44:51 AM »
We have a hardwood bush with walking trails and logging roads cut through it.  The brush keeps popping up, and we'd like to do some spraying to keep it clear.

When do you spray, and what formulation?

I'd consider what exactly you are wanting to spray.  Many herbicides will work better on certain species than on others.  Method of application can also be dependent on what you're wanting to control too.

Sawdust or mulch idea isn't too bad either.

DowAgroScience is a good source of information after you determine what you are going to spray.


Your local Extension office will also be a good source of information.
