Tree Injection for Timber Stand Improvement
Undesirable vegetation can drastically reduce commercial production in forests. Pine stands containing 20–30 percent hardwood basal area will have up to a 50 percent reduction in pine volume growth. Conversely, hardwood stands may contain species undesirable for landowner objectives. In either case, if undesirable stems become large enough, they can no longer be easily controlled through prescribed burning or herbicide applications appropriate for low-growing vegetation. Millions of acres of Mississippi’s commercial forestland could benefit from control of these larger undesirable stems.
