Individual Plant Treatments to Control Woody Invasives

2024 Forestry Stewardship Series
Event Date(s)
Event Time

Treat invasive species one plant at a time. 

One technique used to manage invasive woody plant vegetation is focused, individual plant treatments such as herbicide foliar applications, cut stump, basal bark, and injections. These individual plant treatments can be extremely selective, are easy to apply, and can be used nearly year-round. Explore the methods used for each of the individual plant treatment applications, tips and techniques for success, and common herbicides and tools used with these applications.

Presenter: Chris Evans, University of Illinois

About the Forestry Stewardship Series

Illinois has 4.8 million acres of forest land. From shading homes and feeding wildlife to producing oxygen and filtering water, trees do a lot of heavy lifting. Give them a hand by discovering innovative, research-based management options in the summer Forestry Stewardship Series. Discover how to restore woodlands, learn about research about the impact of agricultural pesticides, explore the legal protections for Illinois’ natural areas, and get solutions to managing woody invasive plants and white-tailed deer.

Sessions in this five-part Forestry Stewardship Series are free and available from 2 to 3 p.m. CT on Wednesdays from July 31 to August 28.

This program is open to forestry professionals, landowners and managers, and the public. International Society of Arboriculture continuing education credits may be available.
