Your worst trees that give volunteer seedlings
« on: November 01, 2022, 01:24:47 PM »
A few trees became a nuisance with volunteers growing in huge amounts under them. I may  not have planted them if I had known this.

Fairchild #2 canistel... I miss a lot of drops and the seeds quickly establish themselves in the mulched understory. The fruit is worth keeping the tree as is my Julie seedling "Juicy Lucy" whose seeds erupt into seedlings easily in mulch.

I've pulled Coffee due to the hundreds of seedlings it produced, and my lemon drop mangosteen is on the list to go.

Any other noteworthy trees which need a lot of seedling removal work?

Ice cream beans (from what I heard)

 strawberry tree (from experience, this grow like weeds and impossible to pick all the fruits off the tree)

Not fruit trees, but pongam, bischofia, and areca palm.

I have albizia julibrissum, which got one self seedling I disn' t expect. Once I sawed seedlings and all died and now in the garden they made self sawing.

Jambolan--the things pop up everywhere. Wet soil or dry, it doesn't care. It seems like nothing kills them.
