Title: Cacodylic acid for precommercial thinning in mixed-conifer stands shows erratic results

Author: Oliver, William W.

Date: 1970

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-224. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 4 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-224

Description: In a small-scale test, a silvicide consisting of cacodylic acid was injected during the growing season at dosages recommended by the manufacturer. The treatment did not thin adequately two of three mixed-conifer stands. Ponderosa pine and lower crown classes seemed more susceptible to the silvicide than Douglas-fir and upper crown classes. No flashback was recognized. But bark beetles killed leave trees in one stand.
