We recently moved into a home with oak trees about 12 years old. One has many suckers and few months ago, the yard guy sprayed them with herbicide before we realized what he was doing. We asked him to. ot use any chemicals on our property and have kept a watch on the tree and the suckers. Some look blackened, others seem okay. How worried should we be and is there any way we can reduce any damage? I cannot seem to find any answers and would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you.
