Advice on Cherry (sucker from graft area)


Hi folks

Does anyone know what is going on here? We put this cherry in a couple of years back and it's doing well enough, but there seems to be a sucker of some kind growing from the graft. Is this part of the rootstock trying to take the tree back or something else going on? Graft is about 2" about the root swell, so is very close to the soil line.. Hopefully clear from the photos..


Any thoughts/advice appreciated! Thanks :thumbup1:

It will be a sucker off the rootstock. Take it off as it will be much more vigorous than the tree and will take over.

I had a pear that was grafted onto Cherry root stock . Used to sprout cherry leaf below the graft . Just kept trimming it off .
