How do I get rid of the Quaking Aspen suckers that are coming up in my lawn without hurting the trees or the grass?
Rate This FAQ
Aspen suckers are tough because that is how the tree grows. The only chance is to put a barrier down between the trees and the area where you don't want it and it needs to be at least 12 inches deep and 2 feet would be best.
