Wish it were simple! You can have the tree cut down and the stump ground to kill the roots. If you simply cut the tree down the roots will have enough stored energy to resprout and you'll have to battle the suckers for years to come. I'd suggest hiring a professional arborist to cut the tree and grind the stump or at least pull the stump out of the ground.
