suckers

crispy_ab(Western Canada)July 30, 2009

Hello - I have a large poplar tree, built a 6 foot diameter bed around it, and then put recycled asphault around the bed - the tree is in the middle of our driveway. I have suckers emerging from the asphault. I don't want to kill the tree, so round-up is not an option...how can I get rid of the suckers?

Trim out the suckers - that's the only way to do this. Unfortunately this will turn out to be a continuing battle. Roots can even break regular concrete let alone aspalt.
