    New customer has shoots popping up all over her back yard garden/lawn; the neighbours cut down an Aspen a few months ago..the roots are active and trying to sprout new trees all over. Any advice?

    I just keep them mowed regularly. Isn't a problem if you get the ahoots early enough.

    Injection of Glyphosate could work as well. Problem is that as you kill parts of it, shoots will pop up along unaffected roots.
