Our Mountain Ash Has Suckers

vite44 added on October 2, 2014 | Answered

Our mountain ash has suckers or shoots at the base and we would like to know how to stop these. The tree is 6 feet tall and we brought it with us from our old place in a big pot. How do we prune these off and stop them from coming back? Thanks.

The suckers may be a result of the stress of being transplanted. Cut them off, keep them cut off, give the tree the best care possible, and in a short time it should stop sending the suckers out. Here's some more information you might find helpful.
