i have a plum tree with it possible to dig it out and plant a new one on the same spot



I guess it rather depends as to why its got canker - most of the time, bacteria enters through wounds in the tree causing the problem, but canker can also be a problem caused by fungus. I suspect it might be wisest not to plant a replacement for a while in the same spot. Bear in mind also that the growing conditions should be improved anyway - cankers are more prevalent in plants grown in poor conditions.
