The area of the tree stump grinding is not suitable to replant another tree in the same place. We always suggest that if you wish to put another tree in the same place that the dirt and wood chips from the tree stump grinding be removed placed thinly over a garden bed and the hole filled with new soil.
I have been told that as the wood chips from the tree stump removal, break down, the soil uses up a lot of nitrogen and nutrients to do so and therefore is not an ideal environment for a new plant to grow in.
