We have a Tame Mulberry or English Mulberry tree that is spreading everywhere even under our home, neighbors field, everywhere! We have cut them down and treated them and they are still coming back up around the dead area. How can we get rid of this tree?

Removing the roots is about the only way to keep them from sprouting, or being diligent about cutting down any and all sprouts as soon as they appear. The roots will eventually run out of stored energy if you keep cutting down the sprouts before they develop leaves. There are also chemical stump killers that you can apply but you need to make a fresh cut so the product will move down to the roots. I wish there were an easy fix to the problem!
