My peach tree has sooty canker disease and we did not notice until all the trunk was infected. Can we plant another tree in the same spot after we remove the tree?

You can, but make sure you clean up ALL debris from the old tree and treat the area with a fungicide before planting a new tree. To be on the safe side, you may want to let the area rest for a season or two before planting something else there.
