I haven't seen froglets like that for years Aliesh, I used to worry about mowing the grass. Good excuse not to

Yes it reminds me of when i was a child, when it was raining we used to collect tiny frogs from the edge of the road kerbs and put them in a bucket. Not brave enough to do it now!

In our wild garden where i have my allotment there are lots of little froglets hopping about. If i water the ground they all appear there must be hundreds of them  it's hard not to stand on them. There is a small lodge at the top of our land i think they must have come from there. Has anyone else got lots of froglets?

I have the gaint one for the first time this year my late father in law planted them.

I was also wondering if they should be cut down. I thought perhaps the birds may eat the seeds, does anyone know if they do? ITs a great plant if you have the space!

Here is another photo of a larger sappling

 this could be the main tree it's so tall it's hard to see the leaves

 I am wondering if i kill the spreading roots with root kill if they will still keep comming! Why are things so complicated.

Thanks for all your replies. I think it is white poplar it's not in my garden but on our family owned land where i have my allotment. My late father in law always kept it tidy  ( well sort of ) there are two more areas where i would like to create wild flower meadows,also infected with the suckers. Not had time to go up today but i will have a look again  tomorrow for the main tree, there is a stream that runs on the edge of our land could it have spread across ? Think i have started something i will regret!

Thanks Will try to get better photo. The strange thing is we can't see a tree the same on our land, so we dont know where it has come from.

Hi i am currently preparing an area appox 30 square meter to make a meadow.

I have used weedkiller as i had a lot of ground elder, i am now digging over ready to sow meadow grasses. there were several small trees which i thought were sapplings, but they are all attatched to each other by spreading roots!  I have no idea what they are but the roots are very hard to pull up. I am thinking of cutting of at ground level then using root kill. Has anyone else had this problem?

 These are the roots

 And here are some still growing
