Title: Control of sprouting of tanoak and madrone stumps

Station ID: RN-PSW-074

Description: In part of the high-site-quality pine and fir types of California, stand improvement cuttings are made especially difficult by the sprouting habit of tanoak (Lithocarpus densiflora Hook. and Arn. ) and madrone (Arbutus menziesii Pursh.). The stumps of these species sprout so vigorously that release of the favored crop trees is only temporary. How to control this sprouting on areas dedicated to production of conifers was the object of a small test on the Challenge Experimental Forest.
