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.
