One of the biggest problems we have in growing pine in central and eastern North Carolina is the controlling of undesirable hardwoods. This is particularly true on recently cut over points. Tow of the most effective and easy to apply chemicals we have today are Ammate and 2,4,5-T Trichloropheroxyacetic Acid. When properly used these kill trees faster than girdling and treated trees sprout less than those that are girdled or chopped down.
