# 54 Herbicide-Shelterwood Trials
  • Objective:
    To 1) test herbicide-shelterwood sequence at a semicommercial scale on a variety of sites, 2) gather information on costs of herbicide application, and 3) gain experience with mechanized ground application technique.
  • Objective:
    To determine: 1) if soil aluminum, deer, and/or shade/allelopathy are affecting development of forest regeneration; 2) the effect of lime on growth rates of seedlings and residual trees; and 3) the effect of lime on soil aluminum and the availability of soil nitrogen and phosphorous.
