    I am cleaning up a commercial location. It is in bad shape, as employees were taking care of it for the last 2 years. Anyways, one of the beds has all of these "weeds" growing all over it. It does appear that the roots from these plants are connected to the trees growing right next to it, all thought I am not 100% certain?. I think it is shoots that are coming from the tree roots? Can anyone tell me if I am right?

    Also, it looks like they cut off some shoots last year and left them lay on the ground. If these cuttings are from the same shoots? it is odd, as they have long thin thorns on them that will make you curse if you grab one, LOl

    I already answered my own question. They are shoots from Bradford Pear tree roots.
