We have an oleander tree in our yard in Las Vegas NV. The problem is shoots keep growing from the base of the tree and we cannot seem to keep them from returning. Mom suggested we apply paint, will this help? Or should we just keep cutting them off? Any suggestions?

Undiluted Round Up will help. You will need to cut the suckers down and then paint the undiluted Round Up on the wounds. The bigger or more wounds you paint, the better. You may have to repeat the process a few times to fully kill the shoots.
