Managing Pine Timberlands
Q: I have a 48 acre tree farm of year-old loblolly pine trees. The land was previously pastures that were sprayed a year and half ago with chicken manure as a fertilizer.
What chemical can I spray on the trees this spring that will kill the grasses and weeds growing around them?
A: There are professional herbicides that do what you want, but you need a forestry expert more than you need me.
Call the Georgia Forestry Commission at 1-800-GATREES.
