Avocado Tree weird behavior

ajpnJune 1, 2014

My avocado was nearly killed by a severe freeze this year. It was probably 12 feet at the time. We covered it, but it wasn't enough. I ended up topping it in order to get it in the garage. It somehow survived all of these traumas. It is now about 4 or 5 feet and is finally beginning to make a comeback. Strangely enough it us developing branches from beneath the soil line. I'm wondering if I should just cut them off.

Any suggestions would be gelpful. Thank you.

From my understanding, since avocados are usually grafted like other fruit trees, any branches forming below the graft should be cut.

This tree was grown from a seed. It's not grafted. It's about 10 years old.
