Weed Control in Christmas Trees

[Post a Follow Up] [Post to this category]
From: Robert Walker
Cisne, IL
I grow white pine, scotch pine and some norway spruce and Colorado Blue spruce. What chenicals can I use to control weeds, gras and broad leaf. I am interested in both restricted and non-restricted chemicals. All the information that I can get on the internet is what was used 15 or 20 years ago. Do you have a publication to cover Christmas tree weed control? I will get a license if needed.
