Ash Seedlings - Sprouts

Asked May 4, 2014, 2:41 PM EDT

Given the abundance of ash seedlings this year, there are several that have now rooted and started sprouts. What is the best way to address these sprouts as there are hundreds of them around my home? I have not yet had to mow my yard yet but am concerned. I noticed these sprouts when I put on the weed and feed this spring.

Regular mowing should destroy most ash seedlings in the lawn. Most tree seedlings don't tolerate being cut off repeatedly at low heights.

Ash seedlings in landscape beds will need to be destroyed by pulling or digging.
