There is distinct regional variation in forestry uses of herbicides. Different land ownership patterns affect policies and practices, and crop tree species characteristics differ within and among regions. Recent decreases in land areas treated have been attributed to budget reductions, changes in operating conditions, and pressures from the general public. Factors affecting future reductions in amounts of herbicides used will include new chemistry, improved delivery technologies, incorporating vegetation management into all aspects of young stand silviculture, and employment of alternative methods.
