How Can I Get Rid of Sumac Bushes?

How can I get rid of sumac bushes? They have taken over the area! I don't want them and have tried a number of things. Any suggestions for killing them off, roots and all?

My husband cut them back at the ground and then each time he mowed the lawn, would cut the area where the sumac would start to grow again. He did this thoughtout the summer and by the end of the summer, no more sumac.
