unwanted new trees springing up

What's the best way to get rid of new trees springing up in my hedges. I think they are maples with a trunk diameter of about 1/2 inch. I'm afraid that just sawing them off at the base will cause them to grow back. I need something permanent.

Weeds need to be controlled by pulling, mulching, or spraying. Just pulling them up is probably the fastest way to rid yourself of them. Mulch would help keep the incidence of them down.

The ones that are too large to pull can be controlled by cutting them off as soon as they grow. Eventaully the roots weaken and die from lack of photosynthesis.

Hope this helps.
