I'm in the process of preparing a veg plot for next year. It won't be ready for this year as I have a lot of work to do with it, briars, buried rubbish etc. I had to relocate a young tree (here's hoping it will survive) and some of the roots are still in the ground, they are rooted deep. I was wondering if the roots will rot away naturally or will they regenerate and cause me problems at a later stage. Smile

They will probably just rot away. Are they fiberous or stout? Your probably better removing the stout roots, they will be a hinderance as you work with the veg.

I have most of them removed and what's left is pretty deep. This is backbreakng work, I enjoy it though. I think the worst part was removing the jungle of briars. But once the rubbish is cleared it will be easy to work with. Smile

It can depend on the type of tree you removed. with most it will not be a problem, but for the likes of Poplar they can resprout again and again. Any idea what the tree was Gerry?

I'm not really sure what type of tree it is. All I can tell you is that it has small narrow leaves and grows very fast. I'll have to some research on trees. Smile
