In most cases the wood from a landscape tree is not suitable for other uses such as furniture lumber and ends up being hauled away or used as firewood. Stumps can be ground or left in place to eventually rot away over the years.

As to what to plant in their place, you will need to determine the growing conditions and make a selection based on what will have the best chance of thriving in that location. Your county extension and/or local nurseries should be able to make some suggestions.
In any case, you will not be able to plant them in precisely the same location due to the stump disruption and soil exhaustion.
