Q.Possible tree root suckers growing in lawn

lizziesue added on July 22, 2011 | Answered

Part of our lawn is covered with these root suckers. They are quite thick and a reddish colour. They just seem to grow up out of the grass. Nearby our neighbour has a damson tree and we also have a pond – have these anything to do with the weed?

Sorr you have not gotten an answer on this. We had a red foliage plum tree that seeded but only close to the tree. We cut it down five years ago and still have "seedlings" popping up. Pulling them is nearly impossible so I just cut them off at ground level. Eventually they will all give up since they can't produce enough leaves to support the roots.
