Maintaining healthy, happy birch trees

Q: We have been told that what we thought were weeds in our front lawn are suckers from the roots of white birch trees. We recently removed a damaged birch tree close to this area. Is there any way to know if the suckers are from the removed tree or if we may have damaged another one? Is there any way to control the spread of the suckers without damaging the trees? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
