I have multiple trees, but I have this one that I never liked, so I really never took care of it, but I noticed it dying a couple years ago, at least 1 of the 2 main trunks was. So, I cut down the one down about 1 year ago, because it was covered in bugs, and visibly going bad with lots of dead branches, there were divots all the way up from burrowing bugs. I still have the 1 tree, and I plan on cutting it down, along with some others.
I didn't like that tree because over the last couple years it always grew little trees all around it and are all over the yard! It started awhile back, I don't know exactly, maybe when it was first starting to die, but I am not sure, I just know I want them all gone.
Do all trees grow "little trees" around their roots, or around the tree while alive? Or is it only when dying or cut down?
If answer is Yes they grow while alive, are there certain trees that "don't" grow little trees while alive and healthy?
Some More Info:
I ask because my back yard is filled with little trees, like all the time, and it is the most annoying thing a yard owner could ever put up with! You can't walk in bare feet because they have these little "roots" that poke up, and it makes parts of the lawn lame, especially at the base of the tree, the grass is thin! I cut them and kill them at will, but it is so bad, that my neighbor never cut theirs' and they now have a tree just as big as mine (so it has been going on for awhile), so not sure if that tree just does that, or if it started doing it because it was dying. As far as I am concerned they are a bigger pest than dandelions.
I really need assistance in preventing them little pests, if I cut my other tree down, or if I buy a new one, if it will do same thing.
