Abstract : Chemical compounds showing herbicidal or defoliating activity were sprayed on 108 individual trees and on 24 plots. A combination of Tordon and Diquat sprayed at ten pounds per acre gave the best results on individual trees.. Cacodylic acid sprayed at ten pounds or more per acre was the most effective on plots, and at 40 pounds per acre caused some defoliation of Pinus virginiana.
