Hawthorne tree

I am getting hawthorne shoots coming up in my yard and garden. I have pulled up extremely long roots with the new trees coming out of them in several locations; but they just keep coming. I cannot seem to ever get rid of them. Help!! They grow like weeds. Same problem with "tree of paradise".

Thanks for writing. Those long roots with shoots that come up out of them are called suckers --- and unfortunately, there's not really any good way to stop the tree from producing them. You can keep mowing them as they grow --- or cover the area with landscaping fabric and mulch to stop them before they can reach the light.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you --- this is a question that there's not really a good solution for.
