Default How keep tree limb from growing back?

I have an elm tree out front of my place

It has one really low branch that is head height and a nuisance.

I saw it off but the dang thing just grows back even harder?

How can i cut this off and keep it from growing bacK?

Any chemical i can put on the "nub" after sawing it off to achieve
that?

You sure about that?

There are not many elms in the US any more, what with Dutch Elm
Disease. An if you did have one - an elm is a notably vertical and
towering tree, even small ones sold by tree farms don't usually have
low branches sticking out to the side. Elms reach up up up.

I suppose that you tried just painting it.

No I haven't painted the cut area

If I do that will it keep it from growing back?

Could be a Chinese elm.

There is a special paint for that, but I don't know what it is called. It
is black, and looks like tar. It is supposed to "heal" a severe cut or
other damage, and I think would prevent the limb from growing back at that
spot.

"Pruning spray". Any nursery or home store with a garden dept should
have it.
