How do I permanently get rid of tree saplings coming up in flower beds?

You may have planted over a seed bank. It's unlikely you'll be able to get rid of them without harming your flowers. They will keep coming until there are none in the seed bank anymore. Until then, you can replant the seedlings in pots and give them away or try to sell them at a farmer's market.
The natural flow of wind and breeze drops the seeds everywhere. You just have to pull them out. May take a little muscle if they get established. My huge gardens and flower beds have their share, and you just consider them a weed and PULL.
