Chemicals and the forest

Abstract/Description: Join Mike Cloughesy and Nicole Strong as they discuss why foresters use herbicides in a newly planted forest. By giving young trees an early advantage, herbicides can speed the time it takes to develop a mature forest. After a few early applications, foresters rarely use herbicides again until harvest.
