First of all you don't say what rootstock you are talking about. Different
rootstocks have different propensities to sending up root suckers. You can
nearly always get root suckers from the m-7 rootstock but very seldom from
mm-106 for starters. I would be safe to say you would probably never stop a
m-7 from sending up root suckers. In general if the sucker is cut off flush
with where is comes out and leaves no stub then you are less likely to get
more suckers. Wherever a stub of any kind is left you can expect more
suckers to come up.
