PORT HADLOCK: Aerial spraying in Jefferson County forests


Spring aerial spraying continues as Jefferson County forest landowners and managers apply herbicides by helicopter.

Herbicides used are Clean Crop LV6 (2,4-D), and Garlon 4 (triclopyr) in varying combinations, the Jefferson County Conservation District said.

The spraying is considered necessary to control vegetation that competes with tree seedlings and affects their growth.

Sites of aerial spraying are scattered throughout east Jefferson County. Notification of neighbors within 1,000 feet of the sites is done by companies involved, normally by house calls.

Maps of the spray areas are posted at the Conservation District office, 205 W. Pattison St., Port Hadlock, and at the County Courthouse in Port Townsend. Questions should be directed to Bryan Schultz at Olympic Resource Management, 360-297-0570, or the Conservation District office, 360-385-4105.
