I have bought a woodlot that has a 10 acre section that was clear cut
and grew back to poplar trees.  They are now 8 to 12 feet tall and there
is not a lot of understory growth.  Some fir/spruce and birch mixed in. 
I do not want to grow the poplar but dont know how to stop them.  If I
just cut them with brush saws, wont they grow back faster than the young
spruce and fir can grow.  What should I do?
