Project Title: Herbicide Application - Lakeshore Marsh WMA, Stands, Root Swamp Unit 1, Black Creek Unit 33 and Port Bay Units 3, 6, 7 and 8

Project Description: The action involves the application of the herbicide Garlon to control aggressive invasives, multiflora rose and wild grapevine. The application will follow the harvest of ice storm damaged hardwood timber which is approximately 80 years old. The trees were severely damaged in the April, 2003 ice storm. The stands listed above (57 acres) do not have regeneration present because of these invasive plants. Following harvest, the understory will be foliar treated with Garlon herbicide, to allow adequate sun and moisture for germination of hardwood seedlings.

Project Location: Five miles north of the Village of Wolcott, in the Towns of Wolcott and Huron
