In many parts of the western states poison-oak (Rhus diversiloba) is a hazard to the health and a deterrent to the productive work of foresters and other conservationists. This article describes the methods used and the results obtained in the practical eradication of poison-oak from about 17,000 acres of woodland and pasture type at Camp Adair, Ore. To meet the special objectives of the War Department for safeguarding the health of Army personnel at Camp Adair, a combination of hand-grubbing, bulldozer, and chemical methods was used to eradicate this poisonous plant.
