Characteristics and Cavity-Nesting Bird Use of Picloram-Created Snags in the Central Appalachians
Abstract:A soil-applied herbicide rate of 40 lb/acre TORDON 10K created snags (dead trees) and/or habitat characteristics desirable for foraging and nesting cavity-nesting birds in eastern Kentucky. Integration of picloram pellet application into TSI programs would allow stand quality improvement and a sustained supply of potential feeding and nesting sites for cavity-dependent birds.
