    If it was cut down, cut it again to make an fresh wound and paint roundup onto the stump full strength with a paint brush. This will kill the tree.

    Spray them when they become noticeable with a 3way broadleaf herbicide.....

    There should be a labeled product for stump removal/growth inhibitor.
    I wouldn't "paint" glyosphate on a stump - same with any other herbicide.
    Contact your county extension office and pose the question to them.

    Round up is labeled for stump treatments.

    Yep. Dril holes and apply Gly at full strength (atleast 41%).
