Weed Management Methods in Reforestation and Restoration

Field Workshop

Saturday, April 8, 2017 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Weed control is often the key to success or failure in establishing trees and maintaining tree growth. This field tour will cover principles and practices of vegetation management for establishing and maintaining trees in forestry and forest restoration.

The focus is on illustrating and demonstrating methods and tools for controlling blackberry, Scotch broom, and native brush, along with grasses, groundsel, thistles, and other weedy herbaceous species. Field stops will feature common weed situations in reforestation and riparian forest restoration.
Key topics include:
• Vegetation management with herbicides
• Mechanical and non-chemical methods
• Integrated pest management approaches for selecting and combining methods.


This will be an opportunity for sharing lessons learned among woodland owners. The goal is to help you to plan
and implement weed management strategies for the long-term success of your trees.


Please dress for the field, bring your own lunch, and be prepared to ride in vans to sites nearby. There is a $15
fee to cover transportation and workshop materials. Registration is limited to 20 people. Please contact Jean
at 503-655-8631 or jean.bremer@oregonstate.edu for more information.
