Was the area you had clear-cut high land or low land?
Our clearcuts were at the edge where the lowland cedar swamp meets the highland hardwoods. They are as thick as all get out....very difficult to walk through. Next time we're up, you'll have to come take a look at it. I think the Doc and some of the rest of us are going to try to get up in mid February.
In regards to the other question, if you don't want a tree to regen or throw up suckers a good mix is 50% water, 50% glyphosate. In our situation the clearcut areas had mixed in conifers and they are popping up everywhere.
