He is currently President of California Inland Fisheries Foundation. B. P. E. Hibbs The application of stable low-growing plant communities as a tool in right-of-way (ROW) management is new in the Pacific Northwest. The development and use of this approach has been primarily in northeastern North America. We initiated a multi-year program to assess the application of this method to rights-of-way in the highly productive western hemlock zone of the Pacific Northwest. Working in the western Cascade Mountains of Oregon and Washington, we found a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees growing in established electric utility rights-of-way that had been treated 3 to 4 years earlier.

Species such as redwood, liquid amber, eucalyptus, elm, and oak are good candidates for tree growth regulators. Selective application methods used with tree growth regulators are basal drench and soil injection. Where trees are required for shade requirements or local regulations, tree growth regulators can reduce the pruning required, reduce safety hazards for tree contractors on busy roads and reduce the wood waste. SUMMARY The future will include increasing environmental compliance regulations, more local regulations and increasing public issues.
