There are 3 options for killing a tree. 1. cut it down and dig out / grind the stump; 2. "girdle" the tree by cutting off the bark and first layer underneath(phloem): encircle the tree about 6" wide and 6-12" from the ground; 3. cut it down and immediately apply glyphosate or triclopyr concentrate to the ring just beneath the bark. The latter method works best if the tree is first allowed to leaf out completely. The second option may result in numerous suckers below the girdle that will have to be removed promptly.
