Resources relevant to research from the Wildlife Chairs at Oklahoma State University is provided in the form of both selected videos, fact sheets and research publications. We believe it is critical for research results to be properly disseminated through both peer reviewed research journals and through the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service so that the public has access to objective applied research findings. A list of chair research can be found on each chairs description pages.




Bradford Pear Encroachment

Invasive callery pear include cultivars like Bradford and Chanticleer. These trees are spreading out from urban areas, where they were planted, into pastures and rangelands forming dense thickets. These vigorous resprouters cannot be killed by cutting the trunks. Unless completely uprooted, herbicides will be needed. Spraying the leaves is effective on small trees but on large trees herbicide must be applied to the bark or cut stump. Triclopyr ester like Remedy is most effective.
