How do you kill the roots of a poplar tree that was cut down about a month ago in which the stump is still there? The roots are growing fine and sending up shoots.

Cut into the roots and paint the fresh cut with undiluted Round-Up. The fresh cut will cause the plant to pull the Round-Up into its system and will kill it. You may need to repeat 2-3 times if the roots grow deep, but it will work.
