Bottom line aerial  spraying is the cheapest for reits. They will never go back to burns . If they had to stop spraying they would just plant but they will defend it to the end. $$$$ is #1 and #2 doesn't exist.
The New Oregon rules mean nothing. Come on they increased the spraying buffer around RMZs by 15 feet as if you can fly by with a helicopter and be that pinpoint. Nobody will ever check on them anyway. Don't tell me someone is going to be out there measuring that edge to make sure they only sprayed within 75 feet instead of 60 feet.
Means nothing !

Well people aren't happy with the aerial spraying because they make a single mistake and whoops covered your house and kids.

No doubt, I am no proponent for chemical spray. Between drift and leaching I am sure theres plenty of spillover. Ive heard claims of such a quick halflife that it is essentially gone in days but who really knows. And humptulips is right, the odds of an audit are low. The guys getting paid 14 bucks an hour to backpack spray through brush are bathing in it though.

I am not a proponent of chemicals by any means but those pilots are really good in my experience.

Well they have already missed and coated people on the Oregon coast.

WHOOPS so sorry

Like I said, in my experience.

Write a letter to your congressman, Im not looking to argue.

Ok I'm just pointing out that they have already tried aerial spraying and people have been covered.

If the timber companies had been careful in the first place this wouldn't be an issue.

Just saw this study.  Apparently glyphosates persist in plants that don't die for a year or more.  Wonder if ingesting glyphosates is good or bad for wildlife?
