Ok. I don't know where to go with this question, so I'll start here. I have a couple of trees in my front yard. One is a crabapple tree. And at the bottom of the trunk, near the ground, out of the tree itself is growing these wierd "weeds", I guess. I also notice that they are growing out of the roots of the trees in my lawn. They are thick stemmed, so I need a big cutting shear or pruner to get rid of them but they keep growing back. Does anyone have any idea what these are and what I can do to keep them from growing? I don't want to kill the tree and I'm not sure if they are actually weeds. Thanks for any help or suggestions!!
