Tree of Heaven

Asked September 18, 2018, 4:08 PM EDT

Hello, I have a mature tree of heaven and would like to cut it down. I understand that this may cause problems because the roots will sprout vigorously. Do you know how to eradicate this noxious weed? Thank you.

Thank you for your question. You are correct in your concerns about the difficulty in eradicating this invasive plant in your garden, but it can be done with a bit of tenacity!

Here is an Extension article about the plant, with recommendations on its control about 2/3 of the way through the article: https://extension.psu.edu/tree-of-heaven

I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
