I have the same problem as you 'Anne33'. Our neighbours have 2 of these trees in their garden, which have been there years, and the suckers are coming up through my lawn in several places, but only have been for the past 2 years. They grow really quickly though, as someone stated previously. We are thinking of digging down and around them all, then placing a strong dose of Glyphosate down. Hope this treatment does the trick, as I am leveling my lawn, so have to plant seeds on top of new topsoil. Hope is doesn't ruin the new lawn, or worse still, eventually come through that too. Please someone advise if I am doing the right thing.
