Dogwood Trees

Q.Had a dogwood that grew up through my deck. Had to cut down after hurricane. It is now sprouting up through the cracks in my deck.

I don’t want to cut a hole in my new deck if it’s not going to be a pretty tree. Not sure if I can salvage the tree since it now is sprouting like a bush instead of a tree.
