How keep tree limb from grwoing 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?
