I an also not sure what it is you are heating and the volume of wood needed. For example, you may not want it to heat with but rather for a cook stove or a smoker ...that would impact the answer. But, given the question and the information available, I would go with Poplar. Even with that choice, it will take maybe 7 years, give or take, to produce a suitable sized tree. I do need to stress that more information is desirable.

Folks are always cutting down and discarding trees(around here anyways), perhaps the land used growing it yourself would be better served for other purposes. By all means plant some trees but don't crowd or other activities.
