We just bought an acreage that has 2 year old poplar trees on what use to be the lawn. How can i get rid of them? I live in central Alberta Canada.

Cut them down at ground level and apply a "stump removal product" available from any garden center, Home Depot or Lowe's.
Product has some form of copper in it which will kill the remaining stump and all its roots and future shoots!

Are these seedlings?
Planted specimen trees?

Either way... Strongly urge you to keep these valuable trees!

Fast growing attractive shade trees, butterfly host plants... What's not to love?

If you only intend to grow turf...

Taking out poplars is no big deal, certainly no need for chemicals.

Just shovel-dig... Insert shovel next to seedling, grab sapling and tug as you prise it out of dirt with shovel.
