Hello, my Sumac tree I transplated from the lake last year is growing great. But how do I tell if I have a female or male tree? Which one makes the seeds that can be planted? Thanks love this tree and it's colors/shape
Gad zooks, we cut them down up here, nothing but overgrown weeds to us.
My old Dad planted a Sumac in the middle of his lawn as a feature. After about 5 years he had a feature alright, it was a Sumac forest, they spread by sending underground shoots out an pop up all over the place. Got rid of em though for him. Just cut the main tree down to about 12 ins fron ground, tied a bag round the trunk and filled the bag up with a systemic weedkiller (SBK) that took the weedkiller down all the roots and within a couple of years no Sumac and very happy dad. This works with any plant that spreads this way.
A weed is only a plant growing in the wrong place.(no sumac is in the right place)
