Hello I'm not sure what this is called but how do you keep the roots from sprouting through the land scape fabric. Thank you

Unfortunately, you cannot. Landscape fabric is not thick or heavy enough to smother seedling trees or keep roots from suckering. (And that thick and heavy would suffocate the soil, an even larger problem.) You will have to cut holes in the fabric to pull them out.

It is hard for me to see, but I think the seedlings/shoots at the base of the tree are locusts. They are notorious for suckering.

I believe the plant is a weeping caragana

That would certainly also have the "pea leaves" I can see.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what pea leaves are. Do you think the growth underneath the caraganus is from maybe another plant or shrub I pulled out before I planted the caraganus.

I looked further and yes your right it is a weeping pea shrub (caraganus). Thank you.
