Looking for some suggestions on how to eliminate the common type of hawthorn in Ontario (Crataegus ???) I have a hawthorn tree that I would like to get rid of growing between my house and my neighbors house which I cut down last year and this year it has grown even larger. I also have a client that has an issue with these trees. She has invested quite a bit into creating pathways and garden beds but in one area of the yard has turned into a hawthorn nursery with a bunch of new seedlings that grow every year. She said she normally just weeds them and is getting frustrated doing this, but I would like to help her eliminate the trees which are causing the problem and suggest some better suited replacedments.
