I haven't posted any questions on this site for a couple years. I forgot my password. What a nightmare!!!!! They need a new way to reset your password! My question is about a large maple tree riddled with termites. I have been having an argument with my sometimes co worker. He says that the tree can be taken down and a new tree planted with out problems. I was under the impression that the tree had to be treated for the termites before it was cut down in order for the colony to be killed so the new tree wasn't in danger. which is right? He is in a big hurry to take down this tree!
