I fee your pain. I must have pulled at least 100 river birch trees out of some of my deck pots today.
Very annoying because the portulaca had reseeded into the pots and trees and flowers are all mixed together.

When I was cleaning out my beds and putting in the new round of compost for the season start I pulled up a small new weed - with a walnut shell still attached to the bottom! Shocked The squirrels have been planting their new home in my SFG. The neighbor's walnut tree (not black walnut) is on the OTHER side of my house!!! Must be one hiding a stash from the rest of the family. Dang hoarders!
