Dalbergia sissoo (Indian Rosewood) is a vigorous fast growing tree known to send up sprouts long distances from the parent tree. Root encroachment is another common problem with this tree destroying sidewalks, pavers, curbing, block walls as well as water and sewer lines.
Although Dalbergia sissoo is not listed as an invasive species, it is considered by many horticulturists to be a nuisance tree because of its aggressive rooting and sprouting.
Pruning is the main method used to manage tree and shrub sizes, but sometimes it is not enough. To prevent interference with structures and sidewalks plant growth regulators are effective ways to control the growth. The regulator is applied to the soil immediately adjacent to the stem, and the regulator is absorbed and translocated throughout the crown. While this doesn’t stop growth, it slows down growth significantly for a period of time.
Sometimes growth regulation is not enough, and the tree must be removed. To remove a Sissoo tree it will need to be cut down and holes drilled into the stump for the injection of Systemic Herbicides which will be absorbed in the tree’s vascular system. The active chemicals are placed into the stump holes and are transported to the roots along with the sprouts they produce. This type of systemic treatment of the stump is the most effective means of controlling satellite sprouts.
