Several experiments on the control of weeds in nurseries of established and transplanted Taxus are described. Mid-summer application of 2, 4, 5-TES at 2-6 lb./ac. as a pre-weed emergence treatment gave satisfactory control of broad-leaved weeds without injury to one-year-old Taxus cuttings and reduced the time required for hand weeding by 50 %. Mixtures of CMU 0.5 lb./ac. and 2, 4-DES applied as pre-emergence herbicides to established Taxus cuspidata intermedia showed promise.
