I have 3 African sumacs in my yard of significant size, maybe 20 ft tall? I've been trying to do a little reading about them and I've decided that they have to go.

I've been chopping and dropping the root shoots for about a week now, and I've just been told that the African sumac is not good for that, so was I informed correctly? Could I not even mulch with it?

I hope I haven't done too much damage by spreading some kind of plant poison

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

I have been mulching with native Sumac. Is it allelopathic? Also I wonder what the half life of the allelopathic compounds are. Are these compounds water soluble or do they sit on top?
