I had a black acacia tree about 20 yrs old, the trunk ~14" across.
About 5 yrs ago I had to prune it heavily; I took off about 1/3 of the
crown during the growing season. Last year, before any growth I took
it all the way down. THe stump is till in place.
Ever since the initial heavy pruing and especially since the felling,
my yard is TOTALLY overtaken by root suckers. Little acacia trees ALL
OVER the yard, some 50-60 feet away from the stump, but mostly within
10-15 ft from the stump.
I've been using Sucker Stopper RTU but I can't keep up.
Any suggestions? Is there a systemic poison that I can apply to the
stump that'll get to the roots and suckers? Will a regular stump
killer (i.e. Bonide) work?
Thanks a heap,
