I cut some large Aspens (3) last Sept and now the roots and stumps are sprouting throughout my lawn.
Crossbow should work great on Aspen. It is an herbicide that is labeled for what is called a cut stump treatment. A cut stump treatment is where you hack or saw or cut the tree or bush off down at the stump level and immediately drench the roots and/or cut stumps with a concentrated dose of crossbow. The important thing here is to immediately drench the cut stump after cutting, so you want to mix the product and have it ready to go immediately after cutting it. It may require 2 treatments.
