Q.How To Stop A Cherry Tree Give New Shoots All Over The Garden

Zone Hastings | Anonymous added on August 26, 2021 | Answered

New shoots of the cherry began to pop out all over the lawn… I was pulling them out, but realized, that they are little trees already, I cannot pull them out, they are so strong… So I started digging them out of the lawn and found that they are growing off the mother tree’s roots, which are very thick, I couldn’t snap some of them with the secateurs and had to use an ax… I wouldn’t want the neighbourers gardens be covered with the unwanted multiple cherry trees… At the moment I have about 40 little shoots, I can only deal with like 5 – 10 a day, because they are so strong. I have spoiled my lawn, digging into it and pulling out very long roots, but that’s OK, I just want to know how to get rid of the shoots for good. Please help?!
