That certainly looks like the sort of growth one gets from a tree root. We get ones like that from a Greengage. Hard to deal with without destroying the lawn. You need to trace the roots back to their source and deal with them there. Be warned some roots can go for a very long way. Our greengage ones are now coming up 20 feet away from the original (deceased) tree.

Pruning Braeburn apple

Pruning now will encourage new growth. If you want to keep the tree in check then prune in Winter, back to 1 new bud from the origin of the ew growths.
