Its a difficult one as i know a tree that has had three big roots removed from the lawn and the tree is fine six years on with no suckers in the lawn.
The risk of harming the tree is my concern. You also have to remember that it will leave your lawn in a mess for a bit if you dig them up. It all depends how much of a nuisance the suckers are. I know walking bare foot can be a problem when the suckers are cut.
Is it worth the risk?
