Killing Mulberry Trees in Yard!

We've been struggling to get rid of numerous Mulberry tree saplings (that become bigger trees) for years! We've hired different people to remove them, but they keep coming back. We finally figured out last year that if you coat the fresh cut surface of the stump with Roundup, the roots will die and not sprout again...yeah! Due to a knee injury I couldn't manually cut them down with a bow saw this year. Due to my recent career change (way less money), we couldn't hire them cut down this year. My husband (the non-tool and non-outdoor person) researched on-line and discovered pruning blades for reciprocating saws...problem solved! Thank-you Ryobi and Home Depot!
