Redbud Trees

I have one beautiful redbud tree in my front yard and fast growing miniatures and sprouts all over my property-back yard and side yards. Is there anything I can do to prevent this epidemic reseeding? I have several mulch beds and they're all full of sprouts

Redbud seedlings sometimes sprout by the hundreds if there is a mature tree nearby casting its seed into the yard. In the first few months after sprouting a single herbicide application is sufficient to kill them. Glyphosate mixed in a 5 percent solution with water is the chemical of choice and should be a applied with a pump sprayer. For the herbicide to be effective, all surfaces of the foliage should be sprayed until dripping wet.
Use caution with a herbicide, as it will kill everything it touches.
