A large tree was cut down on my property. Now the roots are spreading and plants are growing from them. How do I get rid of these roots?
Getting Rid of Tree Roots After Tree Has Been Cut Down
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Cut the suckers (the small plants) and paint the fresh cuts with undiluted round-up. This will get into the root system and kill the roots. It may take a month or so, but it will work. You can also try using a reciprocal saw to cut the roots out of the ground.
