Replacing Arizona cypress with fruit trees

Asked March 3, 2013, 1:09 PM EST

I recently had three decades-old Arizona cypress trees removed. Their stumps still exist. In the same area in which these trees once stood, I now would like to plant peach and cherry trees. My questions are: Do I have to remove the stumps before planting the fruit trees? Are there other issues that I need to consider before planting the new trees?

No, you don't need to remove the stumps unless they are physically in the way. No other issues.
