I recently had a tree (some kind of cherry I think) suddenly die (possibly root rot) over winter and this fall we cut it down and removed the stump (dug it out, pictures below/attached). I would like to plant a new tree (red maple) where the old one was, but I'm worried about nutrients and fungus. From what I've read, it seems that it's not ideal to plant a new tree in where the old one was, but we don't have a lot of room, we might be able to move it 5-10 feet in one direction, but I'm not sure if that's worth it. My questions are: 1) Is it worth it to fill in the existing hole to move it 5 feet away? 2) Whether we move it or not, how should I prepare the ground, compost, fungicide, fertilizer, etc.? And what kid of application rates should I use? Thanks for the advice, this will be the first tree I've planted, and I hope that it lasts for many years.
