How can you prevent trees from spreading?

I have some trees that I cut down but the roots seem to be spreading and similar trees are cropping up all over my yard. I cut them down but they keep on spreading.

    No good cutting them down, you have to dig them up when they are small...........

    I have heard rock salt will do it or you can purchase root rot

    you can cut them all the way down ,drill holes in the bark or roots and use epsom salt,rock salt,or stump out,however you cannot get that on the grass or plants.

    Drill holes in the remaining stump and pour in Blackberry killer. this works for us in Australia.

    Use copper to kill off trees. One can get old copper pipes, nails or heavy staples to hammer into the tree. This will kill off the tree.
