Q.Redwood Shoots Removal

Anonymous added on October 30, 2011 | Answered

We had a redwood tree in our yard that was dying, so we had it removed and the trunk ground out. Now we have a million shoots coming up in the area of where the trunk was and would like to know how to get rid of them permanently.

I hope you can help us!

Cut the suckers and paint the fresh cuts with concentrated Round-Up. The tree will suck the Round-Up into its system and kill it. It may take a few applications, but will eventually kill the roots.
