In this tutorial, we learn how to remove root suckers from trees with Lee Reich. The root suckers will take the energy from the tree, outgrow the tree, and destroy the tree. The easiest way to get rid of these is to just tug them and remove them from the tree, which will result in no regrowth. For suckers that have been developing for a long time, it's going to be harder to remove. To avoid these, make sure you remove them two to three times a year. You can also cut off root suckers at their base if they are hard to remove, if you can't pull them out.
