Based mostly off of recommendation from a panorama firm, we planted a sissoo tree in our yard 5 years in the past once we moved to Phoenix. It has been a messy tree with a lot of leaves and pods dropping which make a large number of the pool however I keep on prime of it and it is manageable.

Effectively, now we now have an even bigger downside. We have now a whole lot of latest sissoo bushes rising up everywhere in the yard, some as a lot as 40 toes away from the tree. I have been making an attempt to kill them and I can not pull them as quick as they pop up. My yard is being overrun with the issues.

After performing some studying on the web this seems to be a typical downside after the bushes get previous a sure age. I’m now calling corporations to see about eradicating the tree which goes to be a ache since all of the roots should be discovered and dug up within the yard or they’ll hold coming again even after the tree is gone.

What a large number, you have been warned…

Wow! Your yard should be extra hospitable to Sissoos than mine. I’ve 2 planted within the again yard, one is about Eight and the opposite is about 2. I even have one other within the entrance, which is a child. They do not sprout in any respect in my yard like yours. I did discover one sprout within the backyard and tried to replant it, but it surely died. Granted they’re very messy however supply such great shade on a scorching day.

Love my sissoo. It’s large and inexperienced and shady. Finest tree I’ve ever had in AZ (properly apart from a peach tree I as soon as had). No shoots right here. Worst tree: eucalyptus.

Mine just isn’t as outdated as yours although.

There are a whole lot and a whole lot of sissoos planted in Goodyear, Avondale and Laveen space alongside the sidewalks/streets. I’m wondering if they’re inflicting issues.

I had Three sissoos in my earlier residence for 12 years and I by no means had that downside. They did get quite giant, however they solely generated some litter within the winter time.

I recommend you seek the advice of an arborist.

I’ve at all times needed a Sisso. I like them after I see them planted and thriving in the midst of a parking zone, placing out lush new development on the most popular, most depressing days. The warmer it will get, they happier they appear to be. Nice shade, good colour….so I used to be shocked after I learn your criticism. I’ve by no means seen them sprout or volunteer on their very own. Do you assume it may very well be resulting from offering too good of an surroundings the place the seedlings fall? What in the event you cease irrigating in areas past the basis zone of the tree? I might assume that ought to stop the seedligns from taking root.

They aren’t “seedlings” from seeds, they’re suckers from the basis system. I can not cease irrigating as a result of it’s close to a garden (my canine small spot) and the garden would die. It has overtaken the garden and moved previous the garden to rock areas that get no irrigation.
