Getting Rid of Tree Roots After Tree Has Been Cut Down
A large tree was cut down on my property. Now the roots are spreading and plants are growing from them. How do I get rid of these roots?

Cut the suckers (the small plants) and paint the fresh cuts with undiluted round-up. This will get into the root system and kill the roots. It may take a month or so, but it will work. You can also try using a reciprocal saw to cut the roots out of the ground.
