    I have an established tree in my garden probably 20- 30 years old. It appears that a new tree has sprouted right next to the trunk, I am not entirely sure it is a new tree from seed or a sucker from the roots. Is it possable to remove the sprout and pot it? If so what care will it need? I plan to give the new tree to my Grandparents and would appreciate any information on this topic.
    Many Thanks

    I think it's a sucker off a main root and will not be movable. A seedling would start out tiny and gradually increase in stem diameter as it grew taller.
