New Homeowner, looking for advice

Nevermind I've asked my uncle who happens to own his own landscaping company. He says I need to plant it outside of where the old tree canopy was. If I can't do that I just need to try to get it as far from where the stump was as possible.

The reason is because the decaying wood depletes soil fertility.

Personally I would plant it as far away from the house as possible.

You want to lessen the chance that the roots will get into your sewer system too.
