tree sprouts in our lawn

Asked June 24, 2015, 11:23 PM EDT

Our aspen trees died this last winter/spring. We will be removing the trees but what has taken place are small tree spouts coming up through our lawn. Please give us advise on how to get rid of the sprouts. Mowing and pulling them out is not working.

If you live in the County, not in the city of Casper, you can contact our local Weed and Pest District Office for potential cost share on chemical controls.

The suggestion from them is: The best solution for complete control of the tree is to have concentrated glyphosate available and as soon as the tree is cut down and you can immediately get to the stump surface paint the cut surface with glyphosate and then repeat the treatment in the fall as well.

Hope this helps with a difficult control situation.
