Eucalyptus Tree

Eucalyptus Tree branch new sprouts

Zone 91902 | JDS24 added on June 20, 2017 | Answered

I have a large Eucalyptus Tree that had three trunks. I had one of the trunks removed several years ago but new sprouts continue to grow. Is there something I Can spray to stop the new sprouts or to kill them when they first come up without hurting the tree ? Thank you for your help. Sincerely, Jim Sandoval

You may be able to use a tree sealant on the trunk to stop new growth. This will also help prevent disease from entering the plant at the stump. Check with your local garden center. If the Tree shares a root structure with the other trunks, such as all originating from a single plant avoid systemic herbicides as it may damage the rest of you clump.
