I have the unfortunate luck of living in a neighborhood that has a number of mature mulberry trees. My neighbors also have one that it about 15 feet tall right on the other side of our fence. This obviously results in having to fend of dozens of new mulberry trees trying to take root every year. I have accepted that pulling the little guys will be a part of my yard maintenance.
But there are a number of them that were allowed to get established along a chain link fence before I bought my house and a few times each year I cut them back, but the sawed off stump just keeps sprouting more and more. They never stop coming!
Is there a way for me to stop these stumps from shooting out new growth? Since it is along a chain link it would be very difficult to remove the stump/root. Maybe there is something I could poison the root system with?
I know there aren't many people on here in favor of using poisons, but I hate Mulberry trees. I want to kill these ones for good.
