Red tip removal

I have red tips that I cut off down to the ground, and this year they started regrowing along with some other plants that I wanted to remove. Can you suggest a way to permanently remove these plants?

Thank you. George

Anne's Response:

Cutting them to the ground and spraying or painting the cutting wound with a Round-up solution works. You can also cut them to the ground and cover the top of the stump with black plastic. It will take several years for the stumps to rot out of the ground.
