The Q&A Archives: tree roots

Question: M neighbor has a mass of cotten wood trees and willows that are sending roots through out My yard. I have small trees popping up all over and My grass has llarge dead spots all over. What can I do to combat this. Weed killers seem to kill the young tree but have no effect on the roots.

Answer: There's not much you can do as long as the main roots are in your yard. There is a product called Sucker Stopper that may work for you. Basically you cut the sucker and then apply the product. It travels into the main root and stops the formation of suckers. I hope it works well for you!
