Aggressive vines, such as kudzu, oriental bittersweet and English ivy (pictured here), threaten tree and forest health.
A daylong workshop, “Using Herbicides Safely and Successfully,” will take place Friday, Sept. 29, in Warrenton.

The Virginia Cooperative Extension and Virginia Department of Forestry will conduct the workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will start in the extension office at 24 Pelham St. and move to Whitney State Forest, south of Warrenton, after lunch.

Participants will learn how to use herbicides safely and effectively to manage the invasive, “bully” plants in garden and forest areas. The training will cover the biology and identification of many weedy plants. Hands-on practice and a review of laws around chemical use will be offered. Participants will have a chance to practice measuring and mixing herbicides and instruction on how to applying them with various types of equipment.

The $30 workshop fee includes lunch. You may register online or at the extension office, where only checks and cash are accepted.
