With much huffing and puffing, excavating and sawing, I've managed to dig out an unwanted hazel tree/shrub. I've got out as much root as I can manage, down to about 10ins, and would prefer to leave it at that. However, I cannot find out if hazel regenerates from roots left in the ground.

Does anyone have any experience that will guide me as to what to do next? I'm hoping that the answer will be - nothing!

The area is going to have some paving put over it and a seat on that.

Many thanks.

I can't remember ever being haunted by the ghost of a hazel bush. I think once they are gone, they are gone, providing there is nothing left above ground.

Oooh, that's reassuring, waterbutts!

Thank you.
