You can, but there are some things to consider. It takes quite a while for old roots to decompose and they may continue to invade the space where you're planning to put a new tree. If there's a lot of sawdust or a stump remains there that needs to decompose, your soil may not be appropriate for the new tree, so you should test the soil, and consider growing your new tree a few feet from the last one's location. Another thing, if the previous tree died of disease, I wouldn't plant the same kind of tree.
