Aspen tree removal

Asked July 12, 2018, 12:45 PM EDT

I have a half-dead mature three trucked aspen tree I need to cut down in my residential yard. I understand if the tree is not completely dead, the root system will continue to sprout new shoots. Is there a poison or herbicide that would kill the root system and what is the best way to apply it?
