MNF to begin invasive plant treatments
Blue Mountain Eagle
The Malheur National Forest
will soon begin an integrated ap-
proach to manage invasive plants,
which includes prevention; manu-
al, mechanical, herbicide, biologi-
cal control and cultural treatments;
and restoration work.
Invasive plants targeted for
treatment include spotted, diffuse
and other knapweeds; Canada,
bull, Scotch and musk thistles; St.
John’s Wort; houndstongue, sul-
phur cinquefoil; Dalmation and
yellow toadflax; whitetop and oth-
er invasive mustards; and leafy
Expanded treatment on the for-
est is scheduled to begin this spring
and is expected to continue through
October. The majority of herbicide
treatments will be spot application
to individual invasive plants us-
ing backpack and truck sprayers.
Some broadcast application is also
planned along a small subset of
roadsides and gravel pits.
Work in 2016 will also occur
within the burn perimeter of the
Canyon Creek Complex fire as part
of Burned Area Emergency Re-
Treatment sites are located
across the Malheur National Forest
and herbicide treatments will be
signed at the time of treatment. A
blue marker dye that will fade over
time will be mixed with herbicides
to alert people of where product
has been applied. Manual and me-
chanical treatments will continue
as they have in previous years.
The campgrounds that will have
no herbicide use in 2016 are: Ma-
gone Lake on the Blue Mountain
Ranger District, Trout Farm on the
