Aspen Suckers

I have two aspen trees in my backyard. They are 8 years old, and last year they started to shoot up through my lawn. What can I do to keep my trees, but get rid of the sucker shoots?

Cut the suckers as they come up and paint the fresh cuts with Round-up. It may take a few times but that will do it.

Aspen Tree Suckers

I have 3 Quaking Aspen trees that are aggressively suckering. Is there any way to reduce the amount of suckers that the tree sends out?

Trees sucker more when they are under stress Without knowing more about your trees, I cannot give a specific reason why it might be stressed, but common reasons are under-watering, pest infestation and root constriction. If you reduce the stress on the tree, the suckers will lessen.

Quaking Aspen Bark Fungus

Our quaking aspens have developed a coated fungus looking stuff on the bark, then they get the branch completely full of this. It is a grey looking matter, then the leaves die and they fall off. It has spread to the other aspens around it. Is there any treatment for this, or do they need to be cut down?
