Area:Field Operations

As its principal objective, this Project’s intent was to reduce inter-species competition to established conifer regeneration through the aerial application of the herbicide "Vantage"[glyphosate].

The aerial spraying program was carried out in August of 2004. In all 119 Cutblocks were treated and comprised 815.3 hectares in total. Direct costs [applicator, herbicide, water supply, communication rental & misc. supplies] amounted to $217.09 per hectare.

Project results are summarized in a brief six page report entitled "Aerial Release Project 2004", prepared by Steve Blanton, and dated May 2005.
