Several clusters are growing up thru the top soil, some i cut some i left there. They seem to be growing out of the trees roots, about a foot down. This tree had a "base" (after it was cut down) about4 x 6 ft! The cutter crew
ground it down as far and as much as they do, but a lot of the remains seem to be near the surface. I can see the roots, by just digging for a min or two,,,,so I can get to some, but not to others. Nothing is growing where the tree was, its still just bare, a 10 x 20 ft area, like it was months ago. I noticed the new growth right after a week of rain----are they seeking out the sun i wonder!? I only worry that the roots are rejuvinating and might start growing/expanding again,,,moving under my driveway on one side and into the neighbors yard on the other---could these roots still be there LOOKING FOR WATER!? im still looking for answers, in the bye I found this:
