Vegetation management isn’t simply using herbicides and weed killers, but is a practice of controlling all manner of plants, weeds, and other vegetation in public roadways and areas that require good visibility or open spaces. It is important to know that vegetation management products must be used very carefully and the label instructions followed completely, since incorrect usage can lead to chemical runoff or unintended plant damage.
Vegetation management is generally a way to control interfering plants to improve visibility, functionality, drainage, and safety functions of roadways, public paths or trails, and other areas of transportation, like railroads and airports. Many times cities and municipalities have their own vegetation management units in charge of designated areas. While vegetation management can be done mechanically, herbicides are a preferred solution since they can help control the whole plant, prevent re-growth, reduce need for ground disruption and cutting, and can be safe for both people and the environment.
You will need to follow the instructions and safety warnings on the label of each product carefully. There are many types of products to choose from, each with a different and specific function, and many reasons to use them. Here is a brief look at what type of product is available and when and where they can be used to get rid of weeds and other unwanted plants.
