Make downward cuts in the bark of the sprouts but leave them

intact. Pour some concentrated Roundup into the cuts. Do this for

each sprout. It may take a few attempts.

Additional Info

The only way to make sure no more sprouts come up is to remove

the stump that has been left. The root system below will always try

to send up new sprouts, unless you completely remove the stump and

roots. The above answer may work.
