Q.How Do I Permanently Eradicate Sucker Shoots On Tree Roots?

Zone Chico, Ca | Anonymous added on November 19, 2023 | Answered

I have a 15 year old ornamental plum tree in my front yard that started producing sucker shoots from the tree’s roots. How do I permanently remove the sucker shoots? Is there a way to dig around the root near the sucker shoot, and wrap the root to keep the sucker from resprouting/ growing?
