Herbicides applied to foliage, bark, or frill cuts on the trunk are effective control measures. Cut stump treatments encourage root suckering and should not be utilized. Treatments should occur no earlier than July 1 and can continue up until the tree begins to show fall color. Effective herbicides include glyphosate, triclopyr, imazapyr, dicamba, and metsulfuron methyl.
Herbicides are described here by the active ingredient. Many commercial formulations are available containing a specific active ingredient. References to product names are for example only. Directions for use may vary between brands.
This BMP does not constitute a formal recommendation. When using herbicides, always consult the label. Please refer to the Pacific Northwest Weed Management Handbook or contact your local weed authority.
