#1: Killing Tree Roots Once and For All

Posted on 2006-07-01 00:07:12 by fleemo17

Several months ago I had two large liquid amber trees removed from my
front lawn. They had an extensive surface root system, so I had the
roots ground as well. Well, obviously some of the roots remain
underground, as now I've got several places where little trees are
sprouting from the ground. I was about to put down a new lawn, but I'm
concerned about these little trees continually popping up. Is there a
way to permanently kill what's left of the liquid amber tree's roots so
no more mini trees pop up?

weed B gone kills non grass, but frankly, mowing will eventually kill them off.

1) Spray the leaves with 2-4-D (Weed-B-Gon).
2) Drill holes in roots, pore in glyphosate (Roundup) using a funnel
Try to drill at an angle and avoid going all the way through the
roots.
3) Try both methods if you are extremely impatient.

Good luck,
Gideon

Gideon, thank you for your suggestion. I haven't had much luck
spraying Roundup on the plants that pop up. They brown and shrivel a
bit, then come back full force. A neighbor suggested using brush
killer (SA-50?). I wonder how that compares with the 2-4-D.

Many thanks.

Wouldn't it be dormant now, being a deciduous tree? If so there's
probably no benefit doing anything with herbicides until spring when
the roots become active again. You could also try a stump gel to
prevent suckers from coming up.

Mohammed, my guess is you're in the southern hemisphere. It's
summertime up here in North America. :)

What exactly is a stump jel? Keep in mind that I don't have a big
stump sitting in the lawn. That was, supposedly, removed -- ground
down. But apparently there is still quite a root system down below the
ground that is sending up shoots frequently. If I dug down to one of
these sub-surface roots, you think this root gel might kill the entire
beast?

Cheers!

First

Is the tree yours?

I would tell you how to do it but too many people would try to kill their
neighbors tree or when a tree protection ordinance requires the symplast of
the tree be dead before they can be removed. I will keep the information to
myself.

Sincerely,
