Had two of these invasive trees removed and stumps ground, although stump of one still has some left.  I keep getting small sprouts in my yard and I want to elimiate them and the remaining roots so I can sod.  I have two live oak trees in my yard that I kept.

drill 3/4 hole ( at center of trunk ) to 4 " deep. than fill up with used engine oil. That's it will rotten entirely root . good luck.

Can you use a heavy duty tiller and grind them down.  If that does not work........In the cold of the winter ask whoever took them down to come back and grind out the trunk roots with that big pie saw that they use.  When you do it out of season that is usually the best price.   The EPA will not allow oil to be put into the ground as it can get into the water supply.
