Practice Guide
I Willoughby
2004
UK Government and European policy is to minimise pesticide use as far as possible. Covering pest, disease, vegetation and wildlife management, and based upon the latest research, Reducing Pesticide Use in Forestry can help forestry practitioners to assess the impact of any problem and select a non-chemical solution. Two simple flowcharts summarise the decision process and link to comprehensive reference material in the rest of the guide. If pesticide use is unavoidable, the guide should help managers to keep chemical use to the minimum level necessary consistent with good practice while at the same time reducing the risk of damage to the environment.
Spare copies of Decision Recording Sheet and the Optional Decision Aid [to assist in balancing the possible non-target effects of pesticides] are available to download here as pdf files:

Booklet
J.S.P. Sale, P.M. Tabbush, P.B. Lane
1986
This is the first revision of the original 1983 edition of this Booklet and incorporates recent developments in herbicides, equipment and methods of application. The diagnosis of weed problems is not covered in detail. The assumption is made that the reader will have an adequate general knowledge of forest management and an appreciation of other non-herbicidal methods of weed control against which to weigh the treatments recommended here. Herbicide entries are set out in a standard format: descriptions of approved products, properties, toxicity and crop tolerance lead on to recommendations for application rates, methods and timing, followed by notes on limitations of use, safety precautions and protective clothing.

Note: This is an archive publication. Always consult the most recent guidance for up-to-date information.

Booklet
O.N. Blatchford
1983
This is the first Booklet dedicated to chemicals other than herbicides used in forestry. It is suggested that this publication is kept with its companion volume The use of herbicides in the forest (Booklet 51) to give a comprehensive reference to the use of all chemicals in the forest. Although produced primarily for internal use by FC staff, both these publications have been made available to the private forestry sector. It should be noted that the information and recommendations given are relevant to conditions in the Forestry Commission’s forests, and no responsibility can be taken for treatments applied elsewhere.

Booklet
R.M. Brown
1975
This Booklet gives recommendations on the use of herbicides in British forests. It replaces Forestry Commission Leaflet 51, also entitled Chemical Control of Weeds in the Forest. Suitable types of equipment are generally described in Chapter 8, but detailed advice on the most suitable type and make of spraying equipment is not given as this can be found in Forestry Commission Bulletin 48, Weeding in the Forest. Recommendations for the use of herbicides in forest nurseries can be found in Forestry Commission Bulletin 43, Nursery Practice.

Occasional Paper
Forestry Commission
1989
The Code of Practice in this Occasional Paper is made for the guidance of users of pesticides in forestry. It amplifies the requirements both of the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, 1988. The code is intended to cover the use of pesticides for the protection of growing trees in forests, woodlands, shelterbelts etc from attack by pests and competition from weeds, and the protection of round timber between felling and receipt by an industrial processor or end user, corresponding with the scope of the ‘forestry' field of use.

Occasional Paper
O.N. Blatchford (Ed.)
1979
This Paper deals with the use of chemicals in the forest and forest nursery. Common forest insect pests, diseases, weeds and animals are listed in alphabetical order by their common names together with pesticides recommended for their control, dosage rates and application methods. The information in this Paper was first published in Forestry Commission internal guidance for staff - 'Entopath News' from 1954 and 'Entopath News Chemical Control Supplement' from 1963, and was relevant to conditions in the Forestry Commission’s nurseries and forests at that time.

This paper also contains a pullout supplement which is a graphical guide to the use of herbicides in the forest.
