If I had to guess I too would think poplar but your right LP there are so many varieties.
I would dig up a few of the young ones and put them in pots and see how they do but then again if you have a lot at your disposal than maybe just dig up a nice big clump of dirt with it and transplant see what happens. I find that if you take enough of the roots and dirt you usually end up lucky.

"UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, PART OF THEIR SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED"
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
