A found "remote" rootsuckers...
Interesting find here.
I grafted onto my crab apple and in the process of doing so, and cutting a large amount of the tree out, I must have really stimulated the rootsystem into branching out.
Below are some pictures of what I've found, click to view larger image.
There is a septic tank underground, in that area, so im sure its above the tank, and not in the tank.
I cant really plant another tree in that area due to the septic tank interference...
So this begs the question, what would you do?
Would you do what im thinking, allow that to grow, select a strong growth and graft onto it to make a 2nd tree growing on the same root system?
Or would you cut it out due to a potential future problem im unaware of? Please let me know if you think there would be a problem.
Could a strong vigorous root system support the growth of 2 trees?
