The use of herbicides is necessary when managing such hardwoods so as to kill competing trees around the valuable ones. This may involve site preparation treatments that are related with a regeneration harvest, crop tree release, or controlling competing or invasive trees in sawtimber-sized stands. The selection of herbicide application is so important as it involves individual tree treatments. A general information is provided for a number of commonly available and traditionally used herbicides for use with hardwoods. Enumerated and discussed are the application techniques needed for an individual tree which comes in as an effective way of controlling many hardwood species. These are the basal bark; the tree injection; hack and squirt and frill and squirt; hypo-hatchet; and finally the cut stump.
