    I have a crabapple tree in my yard, about 50 feet from where the suckers are located. The only other trees in the yard are a pine and my neighbor has a swamp maple. Can anyone tell me if the suckers could be traveling 50 feet from the crabapple. There are no suckers within a 10-15 foot area of the crabapple. Any help is greatly appreciated as these things are driving me crazy! Thanks.

    might be root suckers. I mow at a place that has silver poplar root suckers all over the place. we pull them every week and charge hourly for it.

    simple tree roots are 2-3 times the height of the tree. exp- 30' tree 60-90 feet of roots.
