Q.Tree ID and Removal

Zone Decatur, AL | Anonymous added on March 12, 2019 | Answered

How do I identify the particular tree that has died and needs replacing? There are a couple of several that succumbed to drought and disease. I need to remove them and replace with same tree to match the others. How do I remove so that new tree can be positioned in the same spot? Stump/root grinding will be difficult due to access issues.

Identification: Send us photos of the existing trees that you want to match. Close up of foliage and stems, flowers or fruit if any, and photo of entire tree showing forma nd growth habit.
Stump removal: With no access for a stump grinder, then its pick and shovel and digging bar, and hard work to grub it out.
Drought stress as a cause of mortality is one thing, but if a tree dies from a disease, its best to identify the disease and determine if the replacment tree will be susceptible to the same fate.
