    I have a customer that has 5 apple trees. Earlier in the spring, I trimmed the base suckers down below ground level. At present the suckers are starting to come up again. What can I do or use to kill the suckers without harming the tree? Any help is greatly appreciated.<p>----------<br>--Disneyland on the Potomac<br>

    dhicks--I don't know a thing about apple tree suckers but tobacco growers use an oil on the plant to kill the sucker. it works.<p>I like how that sounds:&quot;KILL DA SUCCKA!&quot;<p>time to get some sleep.<p>GEO
