Should I Remove Suckers From a Birch Tree?

It had three trunks, removed one this past spring because nothing was growing on it. Now there is some growth at the bottom.

Yes, you should remove the suckers from the tree. They will take energy away from the tree.
Clip them as low as possible with a good clean garden shear.
