Planting a tree in the space we lost a tree

Asked September 8, 2018, 8:58 PM EDT

Hi! We lost a front yard tree 3-4 years ago and had the stump ground down. I'd really like to put another tree in. The tree we lost had an extensive root system which has been breaking down and causing our front yard to sink a bit. My husband is concerned that another tree would not have the support it needs from the ground. I'd like expert advice! Thank you!
