Tree of Heaven

Asked October 2, 2020, 11:50 AM EDT

I have 2 mature tree of heaven in my yard in Thornton. When we cut down our Oak, the shoots of the tree of heaven went crazy. I want to cut it down but I want to ensure the root system dies off and doesn’t try to regrow from the stump or it’s shoots. Is it too late in the season to cut it down now October 2nd? Or should I proceed a different way?

Now is the time to cut it and apply herbiside while the tree is moving sugars and nutrients into it's roots.

It is an invasive species, and should be cut down.
