I have a tree that I noticed has more suckers then actual limbs. Is it safe to remove the suckers or will it leave the tree weak?

As long as the tree is healthy, it should be fine to remove them. That being said, normally a tree puts up a lot of suckers if it is stressed. Things like under watering and lack of fertilizer can stressa tree. You should see why the tree is being stressed to help reduce the number of suckers it sends up.
