Eco Plugs are worth trying and you will find information on this long link.
Nothing certain with killing Poplars, seen them send up suckers after a few 
years!

Kill it first with injected Roundup (agricultural NOT garden centre!) 
which is systemic.  I used to use triclopyr (Broadshot/Garlon) the

banned now).  SBK is still available which has triclopyr in it, but I 
don't know the concentration.
Otherwise felling will cause sucker city!

Morning all,

I'm looking at a site where a neighbour's mature hybrid poplar (some 
5m from the boundary) is damaging the car park surface by root expansion.

One option would be to remove the tree, but how to prevent the remnant root
mass from suckering?   Is the idea to ring-bark the tree so that it "dies
naturally" and then remove the dead standing tree?

Thanks as ever,

Jonathan
