Poplar is a very fast-growing tree, so is a good choice for self-sustaining woodlots. It easily splits, and seasons fairly quickly, as it is a low-density wood. Poplar does not put out a lot of heat, so it's a good choice for milder weather.
Don't Burn Poplar
Poplar wood has a very low heating value, meaning you don't get as much heat out of a cord of poplar as you would out of some other woods. It takes large quantities of poplar to keep your home warm in deep winter, especially in very cold climates. Fires from poplar also throw out sparks, which may be a safety concern.
According to keep-it-simple-firewood.com, the effort required to split and prepare sufficient amounts of poplar to keep your home comfortable in the dead of winter is not worth it.
