Removal of Robinia Pseudoacacia Lace Lady

United Kingdom Gb

We removed the above tree which was approx 12ft high dug out main trunk etc. Tree is now shooting in various places in the garden with roots which appear to stil be coming from initial site of tree approx 10ft away. Any advice on how we get rid of these?

On plant Robinia



Find the woody base of any and all suckers, plus the original trunk. Drill into it, several holes if possible, fill up with neat SBK and cover. Or you could use Rootout in a similar way.
