Can a new tree be planted in the same spot as the root rotted Abies?

5 days ago

I have an Abies lowiana seedling that recently died from root rot.

Now, I have a small Black Hills Spruce (Picea glauca densata) intended for a replacement.

Can I just yank the A. lowiana and plant the spruce?

Are there methods to apply before I'm able to do something like this?

I'd really like to use the same spot if I could, but don't want to hurt the spruce.
