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.
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.
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?
The following article should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/tree-disease-identification-sooty-canker-fungus.htm
my aspen buds look like they are cottonwood showing white fur?
Aspen catkins, which emerge before leaves appear, are cylindrical in shape and fuzzy, with feather-like tufts of hair adorning numerous tiny seeds.
Sounds like a normal spring tree event.
Here are 2 photos of the trees: 1) In my yard new this year 2) In the neighbor yard, about 2 story's high, about 2.5 years old or less Thank you, Karen Dawson email@example.com
The first image is a Quaking Aspen Tree.
The 2nd image I can't see clearly enough to make any id for you.
This article has information on the Aspen Tree.
These are young trees maybe two years old I
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. Generally, black will indicate an overwatering issue, though.
