I’ve had my eye on this Celtis laevigata (Sugar Hackberry) in my back yard along my fence for a while. The very top of this ugly stump already grew into the chain links so I had to trim that off. The roots, which are buried, aren’t too bad in terms of radial spread but it will take some time for the base to heal because I used a mean Sawzall to cut the roots short. These are basically overgrown weeds in my backyard that will grow to full grown trees if not eradicated. Because of that I’m very confident it will bounce back very easily this spring.
