Hi Smiler, Nut is right dont go wasting money on sprays and such ,and dont cut it till you know what your doing,iv been there before and got advise from an expert ,it can take 2 to 3 years to eradicate its not too expensive, Find the sours of it and get good advise from the proper people dont start worrying and dont take advise from anyone except the experts ,much cheeper in the long run, good luck.

Help with Acer

Hi Gedam,i cant comment on the root that's been cut off but , if i repot a fair sized tree and at the moment im doing figs,the experts say if you cant go into a bigger pot or into open soil then remove 20% of the old rootball with a sharp knife repot 1 to 2 inches deeper than before adding new compost and tamp down well,this is usually done every 2 years god luck
