While using nonselective management methods may be effective in taking out the incompatible trees and brush that threaten system reliability, they could eliminate many compatible plant species that may be present.

As a result, many public land managers consider herbicides as socially unacceptable and are hesitant to use these tools to protect forest health and to insure forest sustainability.
