I have an ash tree that had to be cut down due to emerald ash borer...but the roots are fine and now sending up bug suckers to start another tree.

The bugs went through here a few years ago and took almost all the Ash, and there were lots of them.

I lost three maybe 30-40 feet each. One guy lost about a dozen, it cost thousands to take them down.

HOLY CARP!!!
those were great!

We've been having conversations about our many overgrown trees. Cute little things we planted, without giving due consideration as to how big they'd get. And some that previous owners put in. And some of the neighbour's that are spreading into our yard. Trees grow fast here.

If you have any stump left cut a piece or two the 3/8 copper water pipe sharp and drive it into the stump. It will stop sending out suckers by the next growing season. Alternately and allegedly not environmentally friendly, you can auger a few holes into the top of he stump and fill them with diesel everyday for week. No more suckers in very short order. I've done the latter several times. It works.

I want the suckers. Eventually one or more will grow into a new ash tree. We now have a 3 foot tall ash bush.
