Suckering Claret Ash

Anonymous added on October 19, 2011 | Answered

The claret Ash planted some years ago now is approximately 15 meters tall and continues to send out suckers around the base. Other than sawing off from time to time, is there another method to prevent this please?

Continual suckers indicate the tree feels it is stressed. Is there something in its environment stressing it? If this is the case, correcting that stress will stop the suckers.
