Apple planting question

Can I plant an apple tree near a dead one?
The tree died of old age and drought rather than disease.

    I don't see why not. They don't have anything problematical like roses. The soil may be impoverished and need  improving before you plant.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Thanks fidget. Now I've got to pick one - and improve the soil!

    Apples are susceptible to replant disease - see here

    I think you should fertilize the soil and apply water before the plantation of your desired tree.
