why has my sumach tree fell over?It rotted at ground level



Oh dear - was it an elderly one?

If it wasn't elderly, then some kind of damage has occurred at the base, allowing something like root and butt rot to take hold.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't send up a new shoot from the base or nearby so don't be too hasty to remove the rootball.
