Description: 

In this webinar, our guest is Dr. Stephen Enloe of the University of Florida Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants and IFAS Extension. Dr. Enloe researches variation in invasive plant treatment efficacy. During this webinar, Dr. Enloe will address herbicide flashback, or the passive loss of herbicides through tree roots after treatment and uptake by adjacent vegetation. In addition to injuring nearby trees, flashback is an inefficient and costly use of herbicide. Dr. Enloe will discuss preferred herbicides for killing stumps and roots without flashback and describe proper application methods for treatment of urban trees.
