What to Do About Sweet Bay Suckers

brookysa added on May 30, 2013 | Answered

I have a lovely sweet bay tree. I'm trying to find a way to work with the root suckers that shoot up. Cutting them down is not neat. . .thought about putting iron edging around tree and just trimming or can I use the recycled rubber tree mat to cover?

Sweet bay can be a shrub or tree. If you prefer a tree, you will need to cut the root suckers. The tree mat will keep them from coming up where it covers the ground. For a shrub, leave the root suckers alone.
