I've never needed to kill poplar - my bane is sycamore.
I saw them off, put a cross in the centre of the top of the stump
with the end the chain-saw and fill it with neat Roundup (glyphosate).
I then tie a polythene bag over the top to keep it from being washed
off until it's all absorbed.
None have survived so far, and glyphosate is rapidly biodegraded, so
I regard it as a very friendly method (except for the tree).
