Foresters are called upon to kill trees as well as to grow them. The killing of undesirable specimens from roadside or fields and from forests for thinning or improvement purposes may be accomplished by the use of tree-killing chemicals. The authors report here their experience with arsenical compounds, especially a 2-pound sodium arsenite solution, and they describe a new tool, especially devised for making incisions and introducing the poison, which reduces the cost of treatment.
