Shredded Bark on Chinaberry Tree

There is a spot of what looks like shredded bark on our Chinaberry tree. Is this something I should be concerned about, and what could it be?

ANSWERS

I wouldn't worry too much if the shredded place is less than 1/4th the circumference of the tree trunk and 8-10'' long. This article tells you how to fix damaged bark: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/repairing-tree-bark-damage.htm

I imagine you have a critter doing the damage.

Getting Rid of Chinaberry Stump

We want a level area in our backyard of a certain size but there was a Chinaberry tree. Lightening had hit it, so we had it cut to the ground level. Now shoots keep coming back and I want to get rid of the entire thing so I can use the area for a pool. What is the best way to do this and what product works the best to kill the shoots so that they don’t come back. Thank you for your help.

Undiluted Round-up will help kill the surviving roots. You will need to wound the roots/shoots (normally, people cut the suckers down and use those wounds) and then paint the undiluted Round-up on these wounds. The bigger or more wounds you paint, the better. The roots will suck the Round-up in and it will eventually kill them. You may have to repeat the process a few times to fully kill the roots if the root system is still strong. This article should also help with removing the stump: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/tree-stump-removal.htm

Help Me Kill the Trees in My Yard

I was told the trees that are invading my property were chinaberry trees, but they have orange blooms. I was told that to kill the trees just spray Roundup on the leaves. I have spent several hundred dollars on it and I still have the trees sprouting every day. Can you help me kill these trees?

Googled How to grow a Chinaberry tree from seed – went to your article and there’s nothing on growing one. Can you help me?

The seeds from the Chinaberry Tree are very easy to germinate.
When the fruit drops to the ground the hard seeds can be collected.
They can be started in small pots of a good quality potting soil.

Planting Berries of a Chinaberry Tree

can you plant the berries and grow a tree from them, i have a tree in my yard that is at least 50 yrs old and would like another one

ANSWERS

Yes, they can be grown from the seed inside the mature berry. The seed is mature when the berry falls from the tree. You can plant the seed directly in the ground or start it in a pot and then transplant the seedling. The seeds tend to germinate well, so it should be straightforward to get them to grow.
