Q.Large Tree Sucker On Large Root – Will It Be Possible To Transplant If The Large Main Root Has To Be Cut To Extricate?

Zone 76108 | Nordbyriggs added on April 7, 2022 | Answered

I have 2 large suckers growing in large roots of a non fruit pear tree. They don’t have their own root systems so I’m worried about having to cut the main root to remove them with the hopes of propagating and replanting them elsewhere in the yard. Help! Can I save the 2 Sucker sprout trees? They are each 6’ tall or more.

You might be able to, by rooting the cutting. It will NOT be the same type of pear as the top, though.
