Ash Trees

Tree Root Growth

stanjo added on May 5, 2018 | Answered

I have recently cut down a 10 year old Mountain Ash, leaving the trunk in the ground. Will the roots of this tree continue to grow and possibly put out suckers in my lawn?

Yes, it is likely that you'll see suckers for a year, maybe two. Mowing should be enough to control them although they are easy to break off at the root which would be better.
