You can rent a stump grinder to remove the remaining stump and roots, or if you opt for manual tree stump removal, use a mattock. Its broad end allows you to dig around the stump; the other end functions as an axe for chopping your way through tree roots. Dig and chop your way under the rootball to the taproot. For large tree stump removal, taproots may be imposing enough to require cutting with a full-size axe. Once you have most of the old stump and roots removed the area should be clean enough to plant another tree. I think a Crape Myrtle is a great idea. Enjoy your new tree!
