Sweet Gum Tree Advice

I've had several Sweet Gum trees and their stumps taken out this year. I am having a hard time getting rid of the shooters that keep coming up at the very small amount of stump several inches underground. Ideas?

Drill a bunch off holes in the stump and fill with salt and lightly moisten salt. Repeat several times or get a product like "Stump Rot" that is designed for that purpose. (07/29/2009)
