Removal of Epicormic Growth and Suckers



Epicormic growth is any amount of shoots arising from activated buds situated on the stem of the tree and there can also be shoot growth off the root system.

Epicormic growth and suckers will be removed or thinned as required by use of a handsaw, secateurs or if used with extreme care, by chainsaw.

Retardants can be applied to reduce re-growth but their success can be limited.
