Chopping it down and pouring roundup on the base/stump seems to be working well here....

BJB - Actually, I'm surprised that works. I thought roundup was systemic and needed leaf activity to draw chemical down into the root system. If it works, great.
Hubby used to recommend on really tough root systems to wait until bloom, cut down, let regrow, then spray. (like Jerusalem Artichoke weed)

I wonder if you're thinking about pigweed? It's got little stickers on it. We get quite a bit of pigweed in the sacrifice areas where we have fed out hay in the winter.

I've seen that stuff around.

What i'm talking about is known around here as hogweed. Maybe a common hogweed? Gets up to ten feet tall. Has deep green leaves and a green stalk. The leave has three points and kind rolls around into each. Leaf about the size of my hand.

That works good as I had a strip of blackberry briers, I kinda hated to have killed, as the berries every year were good, but once I sprayed the regrowth it killed the whole patch slick as a ribbon.

Sounds possibly like Giant Ragweed

I used this method when clearing/killing established oriental bittersweet vines. Round Up (gly) works well and does get absorbed into the stump. Go full strength though on the Round Up.

I am thinking that what is being called pigweed is what we call hogweeds around here, it grows a lot in areas where I have fed hay and also in some other bare spots around pond banks. It will sure eat you up if you grab hold of it or walk through it in short britches.
We have some of that 8 or 10 ft tall stuff too, heard it called many names, think it is wild parsnip, but some call it elephant weed, horse weed, snake weed etc.
