Gardening: limiting undergrowth around trees
We live in Tallahassee, FL where there is an abundance of trees that locals call "Poppin Jack" not sure what technical name is but the nick name sure explains what they do. They pop up everywhere and grow very quickly. Most of them we are able to manage by mowing over them but the ones that are a problem are the ones that pop up under the large trees. There are some saplings that have popped up around them that are just too big to mow and I don't want to use any type of weed killer. Any suggestions for our out of control "Poppin Jack"?
