PORT HADLOCK — Jefferson County forest landowners and managers will be applying herbicides on their property by helicopter in the coming weeks.
Exact dates have not been set and spraying is subject to weather conditions.
Herbicides being used are Oust, Accord, Arsenal, Escort, Garlon4, Chopper and Transline.
They will be used in various combinations and surfactants will be added to increase spray efficiency.
Wetlands and streams will be buffered so herbicides will not contact surface water, Jefferson County Conservation District officials said.
Maps of the spray areas are posted at the Conservation District office, 205 W. Pattison St., Port Hadlock, and the county commissioners office at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend.
Questions may be directed to Bryan Schultz at Olympic Resource Management 360-297-0570 Ext. 26 or to the Conservation District Office at 360-385-4105.
