Replacing Trees: Can You Plant a New One in the Same Spot?

September 18, 2023
Sunny Crutchfield


Replacing trees: In this informative video, we explore the feasibility of planting a new tree in the same location where a previous one existed. The discussion revolves around the size of the original tree and its implications for successful replanting. If the removed tree was relatively small, the prospects of planting a new one in the same spot are promising. However, for larger trees, a challenge arises. The video highlights that when dealing with substantial tree removal, there is often a significant amount of wood remaining deep underground that stump grinding machines cannot fully excavate. As a result, when a new tree is planted in this scenario, it effectively grows on top of hardwood remnants, limiting its rooting depth. This condition renders the newly planted tree more sensitive to drought and potentially less robust. This video provides valuable insights for anyone considering replacing trees, shedding light on the factors that can influence the success of such endeavors.
