Abstract:

The Proposed Action involves using a helicopter equipped with a boom spray rig to accomplish the aerial application of chemical herbicides within isolated and remote areas of the base. Herbicides would be sprayed over the target plant species to kill the plants in place and control the spread of nuisance and invasive plant species across the base. The aerial spraying events would be accomplished semi-annually into the future until invasive species growth is brought under control.
