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.
