In 1989, four single-stem vegetation-control methods were used on trembling aspen overstory on two study sites at Prince George and Kelowna in British Columbia. The study compared cost and productivity of four treatments: Hack-and-squirt, GEL, CAP, EZJECT,, and girdling. The study also established permanent sample plots and collected baseline data for monitoring the efficacy of treatments and the effect of the treatments on understory plant communities.
