FORESTRY CONIFER AND HARDWOOD RELEASE - WOODY BRUSH AND TREES
How this product works
This product is a water-soluble liquid, which mixes readily with water and nonionic surfactant to be applied as a foliar spray for the control or destruction of many herbaceous and woody plants. This product is intended for control of annual and perennial weeds and woody plants in forests, pine straw plantations, non-crop sites such as utility rights-of-way, and in and around aquatic sites; also for use in wildlife habitat areas, for perennial grass release, and grass growth suppression and grazed areas on these sites.
The active ingredient in this product moves through the plant from the point of foliage contact to and into the root system. Visible effects on most annual weeds occur within 2 to 4 days, 7 days or more on most perennial weeds, and 30 days or more on most woody plants. Extremely cool or cloudy weather following treatment may slow the activity of this product and delay visual effects of control. Visible effects include gradual wilting and yellowing of the plant which advances to complete browning of above-ground growth and deterioration of underground plant parts.
Unless otherwise directed on the label, delay application until vegetation has emerged and reached the stages described for control of such vegetation under the “Weeds Controlled” section of the label.
Unemerged plants arising from unattached underground rhizomes or root stocks of perennials or brush will not be affected by the spray and will continue to grow. For this reason best control of most perennial weeds or brush is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages
Always use the higher rate of this product and surfactant within the recommended range when vegetation is heavy or dense, when treating dense multi-canopied sites or woody vegetation or difficult-to-control herbaceous or woody plants.
Do not treat weeds, brush or trees under poor growing conditions such as drought stress, disease or insect damage, as reduced control may result.
Reduced control of target vegetation may also occur if foliage is heavily covered with dust at the time of treatment.
Reduced control may result when applications are made to woody plants or weeds following site disturbance or plant top growth removal from grazing, mowing, logging or mechanical brush control. For best results, delay treatment of such areas until resprouting and foliar growth has restored the target vegetation to the recommended stage of growth for optimum herbicide exposure and control.
Rainfall or irrigation occurring within 6 hours after application may reduce effectiveness. Heavy rainfall or irrigation within 2 hours after application may wash the product off the foliage and a repeat treatment may be required.
This product does not provide residual weed control. For subsequent residual weed control, follow a label-approved herbicide program. Read and carefully observe the cautionary statements and all other information appearing on the labels of all herbicides used.
Note: The maximum rates stated throughout this product’s labeling apply to this product combined with the use of all other herbicides containing glyphosate or sulfosate as the active ingredient, whether applied as mixtures or separately. Calculate the application rates and ensure that the total use of this and other glyphosate or sulfosate containing products does not exceed the maximum use rates.
Grazing Restrictions: This product may be used to treat undesirable vegetation in utility rights-of-way that pass through pastures, rangeland, and forestry sites that are being grazed. For tank mix applications, comply with all restrictions appearing on the tank mix product label. Except for lactating dairy animals there are no grazing restrictions following the labeled applications of this product.
- For lactating dairy animals there are no grazing restrictions for the following labeled applications of this product:
- Where the spray can be directed onto undesirable woody brush and trees, such as in handgun spray-to-wet or low volume directed spray treatments.
- For tree injection of frill applications and for cut stump treatments
- For broadcast applications, observe the following restrictions for lactating dairy animals:
- For application rates of greater than 4.5 but not to exceed 7.5 quarts per acre, no more than 15 percent of the available grazing area may be treated.
- For application rates that do not exceed 4.5 quarts per acre, no more than 25 percent of the available grazing area may be treated.
- These restrictions do not apply to pastures, rangeland or forestry sites outside of utility rights-of-way.

See the supplemental label for use of this product by air in California.
For control of weed or brush species listed in the label using aerial application equipment: For aerial broadcast application, unless otherwise specified, apply the rates of this product and surfactant recommended for broadcast application in a spray volume of 3 to 20 gallons of water per acre. See the “Weeds Controlled” section of the label for labeled annual and herbaceous weeds and woody plants and broadcast rate recommendations. Aerial applications of this product may only be made as specifically recommended in the label. For aerial application of this product in California, refer to Federal supplemental label for this product entitled “For Aerial Application in California Only”.
In California, aerial application may be made in aquatic sites and noncrop areas, including aquatic sites present in noncrop areas that are part of the intended treatment.
Forestry and Utility Rights-of-Way Sites: It is recommended that this
product be applied by helicopter only in forestry sites and utility rights-of-way.
Apply the rate of this product and surfactant recommended for broadcast sprays in a spray volume of 5 to 30 gallons per acre.
In California, aerial application may be made only in non-residential, forestry sites or chaparral areas.
AVOID DRIFT. Do not apply during inversion conditions, when winds are gusty or under any other condition which will allow drift.
Drift may cause damage to any vegetation contacted to which treatment is not intended. To prevent injury to adjacent desirable vegetation, appropriate buffer zones must be maintained.
Ground Broadcast Equipment
For control of weed or brush species listed in the label using conventional boom equipment: For ground broadcast application, unless otherwise specified, apply the rates of this product and surfactant recommended for broadcast application in a spray volume of 3 to 30 gallons of water per acre. See the “Weeds Controlled” section of the label for labeled annual and herbaceous weeds and woody plants and broadcast rate recommendations. As density of vegetation increases, spray volume should be increased within the recommended range to ensure complete coverage. Carefully select correct nozzle to avoid spraying a fine mist. For best results with ground application equipment, use flat fan nozzles. Check for even distribution of spray droplets.
Forestry and Utility Rights-of-Way Sites: This product is recommended for broadcast applications using suitable ground equipment in forestry sites, utility sites, and utility rights-of way.
Apply the recommended rates of this product and surfactant in a spray volume of 10 to 60 gallons per acre. Check for even distribution of spray droplets.
Hand-Held and High-Volume Equipment
(Use Coarse Sprays Only)
For control of weeds listed in the label using knapsack sprayers or high-volume spraying equipment utilizing handguns or other suitable nozzle arrangements:
High volume sprays: Apply to foliage of vegetation to be controlled. For specific rates of application and instructions for control of various annual and perennial weeds, see the “Weeds Controlled” section in the label.
Applications should be made on a spray-to-wet basis. Spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Do not spray to point of runoff.
Low volume directed sprays: This product may be used as a 5 to 10 percent solution in low-volume directed sprays for spot treatment of trees and brush. This treatment method is most effective in areas where there is a low density of undesirable trees or brush. If a straight stream nozzle is used, start the application at the top of the targeted vegetation and spray from top to bottom in a lateral zig-zag motion. Ensure that at least 50 percent of the leaves are contacted by the spray solution. For flat fan and cone nozzles and with hand-directed mist blowers, mist the application over the foliage of the targeted vegetation. Small, open branched trees need only be treated from one side. If the foliage is thick or there are multiple root sprouts, applications must be made from several sides to ensure adequate spray coverage.
This product may be applied through shielded sprayers or wiper application equipment. This equipment may be used to selectively control undesirable vegetation without harming desirable vegetation.
Shielded sprayers direct the herbicide solution onto weeds while shielding desirable vegetation from the spray solution. Any recommended rate or tank mixture of this product may be used employing this equipment.
Wiper applicators physically wipe product directly onto undesirable vegetation. Care should be taken to avoid wiping desirable vegetation.
Use a 33 to 100 percent solution of this product, diluted in water for wiper applications. Use a 33 percent solution for wick or gravity feed systems. Higher concentrations may be used in pressurized systems that are capable of handling thicker solutions. Addition of a nonionic surfactant at a rate of 10 percent by volume of total herbicide solution is recommended.
Refer in the label regarding tank mix information.
FORESTRY CONIFER AND HARDWOOD RELEASE
Woody Brush and Trees
NOTE: If brush has been mowed or tilled or trees have been cut, do not treat until regrowth has reached the recommended stage of growth.
Application Rates and Timing
When applied as a 5 to 8 percent solution as a directed application as described in the “Hand-Held and High-Volume Equipment” section, this product will control or partially control all wood brush and tree species listed in this section of the label. Use the higher rate of application for dense stands and larger woody brush and trees.
Specific Brush or Tree Control Recommendations: Numbers in parentheses “(-)” following the common name of a listed brush or tree species refer to “Specific Brush or Tree Control Recommendations” which follow the species listing. See this section for specific application rates and timing for listed species.
For woody brush and trees, apply the recommended rate plus a surfactant such as a non-ionic surfactant containing 80% or greater active ingredient. Use of this product without surfactant will result in reduced herbicide performance. Refer to the “Mixing and Application Instructions” section of the label and the surfactant manufacturer label for more information. Make applications when plants are actively growing and, unless otherwise directed, after full-leaf expansion. Use the higher rate for larger plants and/or dense areas of growth. On vines, use the higher rate for plants that have reached the woody stage of growth. Best results are obtained when application is made in late summer or fall after fruit formation.
In arid areas, best results are obtained when application is made in the spring or early summer when brush species are at high moisture content and are flowering. Ensure thorough coverage when using hand-held equipment. Symptoms may not appear prior to frost or senescence with fall treatments.
Allow 7 or more days after application before tillage, mowing or removal. Repeat treatments may be necessary to control plants regenerating from underground parts or seed. Some autumn colors on undesirable deciduous species are acceptable provided no major leaf drop has occurred. Reduced performance may result if fall treatments are made following a frost.
Forestry Conifer and Hardwood Release
Directed Sprays and Selective Equipment
This product may be applied as a directed spray or by using selective equipment in forestry conifer and hardwood sites, including Christmas tree plantations and silvicultural nurseries. This product requires use with a surfactant. Use only surfactants that are approved for conifer release and specified on the surfactant label as safe for use in conifer release (pine release). Use of this product without surfactant will result in reduced herbicide performance. Refer to the “Mixing and Application Instructions” section of the label and the surfactant manufacturer label for more information.
Tank Mixing: In hardwood plantations, tank mixtures with Oust may be used. In pine plantations, tank mixtures with Garlon 4 or Arsenal AC may be used. Comply with all site restrictions, forestry species limitations, and precautions on the tank mix product labels. Avoid contact of spray drift, mist or drips with foliage, green bark or non-woody surface roots of desirable plant species. See “Application Equipment and Techniques” section of the label for specific recommendations and precautions.
Spray-to-Wet Applications: Use a 2 percent spray solution to control undesirable woody brush and trees. To control herbaceous weeds, use a 1 to 2 percent spray solution.
Low Volume Directed Spray Applications: Use a 5 to 10 percent spray solution. Coverage should be uniform with at least 50 percent of the foliage contacted. Coverage of the top one-half of the unwanted vegetation is important.
Broadcast Applications: For equipment calibrated for broadcast applications, use 1 1/2 to 7 1/2 quarts of this product per acre. Apply in 10 to 60 gallons of clean water per acre. Shielded application equipment may be used to avoid contact of the spray solution with desirable plants. Shields should be adjusted to prevent spray contact with the foliage of green bark of desirable vegetation.
Wiper Application Equipment: See the “Selective Equipment” section of the label for equipment and application rate recommendations.
