Highlight: The influence of various site characteristics was studied for Tordon 225 Mixture effectiveness in honey mesquite control in the Rolling Plains of Texas. Tordon 225 Mixture was commercially applied in 1970 at 0.5 lb a.e./acre under an experimental label for Texas. Generally, soil temperature (18~inch depth) above 75"F, relatively low soil water content (0 to Cinch depth), and tree height (less than 8 ft) were most influential in the root mortalities obtained in this study.
