Crab Apple Trees

Tree Shoots or Suckers in Our Lawn

Anonymous added on July 15, 2015 | Answered

We have what appears to be tree shoots or tree suckers throughout our yard. Every week we mow them down but they don't die and seem to be everywhere. Is there a product we can use to kill the shoots, but not the trees? The trees in our yard are crab apple, pin oak and a maple.
