Control Methods

Guidance is available on the following methods

·         Basal bark application

·         Herbicide injection

·         Manual control

In all cases, it is essential that landowners take the necessary safety precautions, as specified on the herbicide label, and do not treat trees near sensitive areas, such as power-lines, baches and walking tracks.

The Trust has also undertaken research into the aerial treatment of trees, which may be suited to remote or inaccessible trees.
