chokecherry suckers

Is there any way to prevent chokecherry trees from growing suckers? If not, is there something I can do to kill off these suckers other than cutting them down? Thank you, Bob

There really is no sure-fire way to get a tree to stop suckering outside of killing it. However, you can try to discourage suckering simply by making sure your tree is in optimal health. You can read more about this in the section "tree sucker control" in the following article:
