SIPMA and PA Game Commission work to control buckthorn on SGL 14

SIPMA is working with the PA Game Commission to control buckthorn on State Game Lands 14. This small tree grows really fast and invades areas where the forest has been opened up–it likes sunshine.  The vegetation on this site (not pictured) is 98% buckthorn, and has invaded an active stream bed, so we used an aerial application. Pretty darn cool!Aerial spray of buckthorn IMG_1668
