Help! Tens of Tree Saplings all over lawn - how to kill?

Posted: 23/04/2012 at 10:45

Hi, I'm fairly new to gardening.  We bought our house 2 years ago and we have lots (in the tens) of tree saplings in our garden - mainly in the lawn.  We can't pull them up and the roots are usually too big for secaters so use loppers on them - even though they are only a couple of inches tall.  I just tried to pull a tiny one up and managed to but it also pulled up about a meter of lawn with a huge root system.  It obviously didn't pull all out so it made me think all the saplings were linked to the same root.  How do I kill them as I think they may be going under our conservatory and house.  I don't even know what tree they are, the leaves are soft and slighly serrated, green with a slight red tinge to the outer edge.

Any help and expertise would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
