Abstract:Dicamba (Banvel® CST), 2,4-D (DMA® 4), triclopyr (Garlon® 3A), glyphosate (Roundup®), 2,4-D + picloram (Tordon® RTU), hexazinone (Velpar® L), dichlorprop (Weedone® 2,4 DP) and hexazinone (Velpar® Gridball®) were tested as individual tree treatments on turkey oak (Quercus laevis Walt.) trees ranging from 3 to 16 inches in dbh and 10 to 70 feet in height. Treatments were applied in June 1982 according to manufacturers recommendations. After two growing seasons, significant refoliation was observed on trees treated with Velpar® Gridball®, Weedone® 2,4-DP and Banvel® CST. Garlon® 3A, DMA® 4 and Velpar® L were the most successful treatments for control of turkey oak. South. J. Appl. For. 10:131-33, Aug. 1986.
