Individual study: Chemical control of birch Betula regrowth on heathland at West Moors, Dorset, England
Liley D. (2005) Chemical control of birch Betula regrowth on heathland at West Moors, Dorset, England. Conservation Evidence, 2, 130-130
During the winter of 2000-2001, approximately 2.4 ha of dense (75-100% tree cover) and 0.6 ha of medium (25-50% tree cover) birch Betula was cut and removed. In August 2002, the cleared birch had regenerated resulting in a dense stand of 2 m high birch. The regrowth was sprayed with Timbrel using knapsack sprayers. The regrowth kill rate of sprayed areas was 100%; no regrowth was subsequently recorded.
