No. 085 Loblolly Pine Release Study Report No. 14; by T. A. Dierauf

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by aerial application of herbicides at age four to no treatment and measured through age 16. Herbicide plots averaged 22% more basal area and 35% more volume than check plots.

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by aerial application of herbicides at age four to no treatment and measured through age 19. Herbicide plots averaged 31% more basal area and 53% more volume than check plots.

No. 087 Loblolly Pine Release Study Report No. 16; by T. A. Dierauf

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by aerial application of herbicides at age three to no treatment and measured through age 15. Herbicide plots averaged slightly less basal area and only 0.4 cords per acre more volume than check plots.

No. 088 Loblolly Pine Release Study Report No. 17; by T. A. Dierauf

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by basal spraying herbicides at two dilution rates at age one to no treatment and measured through age 18. Herbicide plots averaged 10-16% more basal area and 13-23% more volume than check plots.

No. 069 Loblolly Pine Release Study Report No. 5; by T. A. Dierauf

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by mist-blowing herbicides at age four to no treatment and measured through age 21. Mist-blown plots averaged 78% more basal area and 91% more volume than check plots.

No. 070 Loblolly Pine Release Study Report No. 6; by T. A. Dierauf

November 3, 2020 - Report summarizes findings from plots comparing release from hardwood competition by either hand chopping or mist-blowing herbicides at age five to no treatment and measured through age 22. Hand-chopped plots averaged 52% more basal area and 63% more volume than the check plots, and mist-blown plots averaged 19% more basal area and 17% more volume than check plots.
