PROPOSAL ON: TECHNIQUES OF VEGETATION MANAGEMENT, THEIR EFFECTS AND CONTROL
This article discusses the techniques of vegetation management such (hand cutting, mowing, cut stump treatment w/ herbicides, basal spraying w/herbicide, and foliar application of herbicides) and determine their effect lands. The study uses the effect of this techniques on wet lands as case study. The conclusion reached was that there was no significant effect to wetlands from any of the vegetation management techniques used. Mechanical treatments resulted in higher impacts on the cover value for wildlife than those involving herbicides. Residue from petroleum products (bar oil and hydraulic fluid) were recovered on the leaf litter from mechanically treated sites. No herbicide residues were recovered from herbicide-treated sites.
