This is a stand of improved slash pines planted in 1995 and were 4th row thinned about three years ago. Last week, I made a blog post about Japanese Fern and Chinese Privet. Here is a native shrub found in the Coastal Plain region – Inkberry (Illex glabara). UGA Extension Forestry Weed Specialist Dr. David Moorhead says that burning will keep it small in stature but it is adapted to fire. A herbicide treatment using tricolpyr would be helpful. This would also will be fine without harming grasses. For more information on forest weed control, visit the Center For Invasive Species website.
