Restrictions on use of 2,4,5- T have created a need for herbicides that can be used for conifer release. Seven-year-old Norway spruce was released from competing vegetation with aerially applied Roundup. A wide spectrum of competing species were controlled and most hardwoods did not resprout during the 2-year evaluation period following treatment. Norway spruce appeared to respond to treatment and suffered negligible damage. Roundup as applied in this study appears to be a safe, effective herbicide that can be used to release Norway spruce. North. J. Appl. For. 2:29-32, June 1984.
