My live oak keeps sprouting up new growth from it's roots not acorns. What can I do to stop the growth of the sprouts?

One of the best solutions to preventing new growth from the roots is to use water permeable landscape fabric in conjunction with dirt. Make a skirt for the tree out of the landscape fabric, and cover with dirt until no roots are exposed.
