Should You Plant a Tree in the Same Spot after a Removal

By Advance Tree Pros

The loss of a tree from your property can cause a void in your landscaping. What you do with that void depends on such factors as the size of the tree, how it was removed and the condition of the remaining soil. You can plant another tree in that location, but there are several issues you need to consider before moving ahead with your plan.

When a Tree Goes

When a tree falls, from age, disease or weather, it can leave a huge mess. After getting rid of a fallen tree, our specialized tree removal team will grind the remaining stump. What you’re often left with is a hole in the ground filled with sawdust. The roots remain, and that’s your main obstacle for replanting in that spot.

Plant a Hope for Future

tree removal services in OrlandoOrlando tree removal company suggests in order to replant another tree in that location, remove as much of the sawdust and as many of the roots from the original tree as possible to provide a rich growing environment for a new tree. In order for you to plant a tree in that spot, Tree removal in Orlando certified arborists will use a pickaxe to chop out all the old roots so the new tree has plenty of root room to establish itself.

If you still find a stump in your yard, we can encourage it to decompose. We can drill holes into it and fill them with a mixture of one-part compost, one-part topsoil, and one part high-nitrogen fertilizer, but it could take one to three years for the stump and roots to fully decompose.

New Life for a Tree

In order to successfully replant a tree in that spot, you can dig out an area three times the size of the new tree’s root ball. Or you can plant the new tree about 3-feet away from the original location, which will give it enough room to grow with its new roots. If it’s in the original location, fill the hole with good dirt, such as potting the soil mixed with native dirt and possibly even some of the stump’s remains.

Another Root for Smaller Tree

A good option for replanting is to choose a smaller tree with a smaller root ball so it has sufficient room to grow. Instead of a tree, consider planting grass or other plants such as flowers or hedges over the location, but be aware that tree stump removal can cause ridges or depressions in the ground.
