suckers (is that the word?) on a tree
Hi there. I have a young pear tree in my garden, which the previous owners somewhat neglected. It has many suckers (is that the right word?) growing from the base of the tree, as you can see in the image.
I've cut back the twiggy growth, but wanted to know if I can saw off the branches, or if I have to wait until after the growing season? Any advice would be much appreciated
