Hi there I have a Golden pencil Pine (12foot) I'm looking to cut it down.

I'd like to plant either a lily pily or dwarf almond tree in its place.
Am I ok to plant on top of the stump once its grinded down?
Its currently in the perfect spot so i cant offset the new plant.
Would be great to get some advice before i cut it down.
much appreciated,

Answer: Hi Travis,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

As long as the old stump has been completed grind down, you can plant a new tree in the same spot. It would be beneficial to clear out any of the sawdust after grinding. Before planting, I suggest improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
