Yes, you are absolutely correct on your description. I hate the smell every time I have to dig them out by hand.

As a follow up... I attempted to use a poison sold at homedepot but it really does not seem to be strong enough. The wild plants and small reborn trees keep coming back.

I will be looking into cutting down this tree but it can get very expensive therefore is something I have to plan for. Definetly I will cut it down as soon as I have the money to do so. This tree was the first complaint I receive when I moved into my house from the neighbor. They say that they get all this small trees that keep growing back on their yards from the seeds of this old large tree. I was not really looking into cutting the tree at first but I have come to the conclusion that I have no other choice.

This is going to be a long process before I can have a nice back yard. I would have to cut the trees, kill all the other wild plants, weeds, etc. Keep the land clean for a couple weeks just to make sure I do not get more of these plants back. Then install sprinkles and then finally new sod. Wow, lots of work and very little money. Wish me luck.

You will find that the roots will continue to send up shooters for possibly a year
I just kept mowing the area - eventually the root dies

Do you mean that I will continue to see those trees growing from the old roots even after I remove the tree it self?. I am starting to hate this tree and I want it gone soon. It is a lot of work to keep cleaning those "shooter" as you call them. And if I do not remove them while they are small they get to grow pretty fast and then its worst.

I wish there was a strong poison that I could spray on this trees and would kill the whole thing including the roots. I have tried a product from homedepot although it took a few days it eventually kill the plan but I don't think it killed the roots.

Yes, the roots will not die right away
Depennding upon when you cut the tree down they will keep growing & try to leaf out
