Planting new tree in old hole?

I have 2 trees that are dead that I am having removed and their stumps grinded. I want to replace them. Is it wise to plant them in the same hole, or will the existing root system interfere with their development? Thanks.

Smile Same hole new tree

Good day hosf75

I believe that I would plant the new trees anywhere but in the center. If these were seed grown trees you removed, they will have a large deep Tap root.

Dig your new hole as deep as you can, & incorporate a lot of slow to break down foods for the tree. Blood Meal, Bone meal, Green Sand, Kelp Meal etc. When I put in even a semi Dwarf fruit tree in, I factor 15 to 20 years of life. Use some limestone fines if you have a quarry near by it will keep the PH right & areate the soil + add much needed Calcium.

Dolomitic limestone is rich in Magnesium & low on Calcium most of us need Calcium & not more Magnesium. No quarry ask for High Cal limestone in the 40 # bag & not the bright white agucultural Lime it can burn new roots.

What type trees are you planting?

Not sure what type yet. Something leafy as I want the shade in the summer but want the sunlight to help heat the rooms on that side in the winter. Thanks.

Smile Good answer

To often many people don't take the time to make the choices needed to find the right tree. So many things to consider when we are faced with chosing a tree, that we will have to live with for a very long time.

To everyone:
With the price of Fruit going up every year, it may serve two purposes to consider a fruit tree or two room permiting of course.

Good luck on your task hosf75 .
