I agree with Lucky on the failed graft replacement process.

  Betsy,
  I suppose that if the entire tree failed - rootstock and all - I 
  might be inclined not to replant the same species there, but if it 
  was just a problem of the graft dying out, but the rootstock was 
  re-sprouting vigorously, I wouldn't worry - but *I* would probably 
  just leave the established rootstock in place and re-graft it.

  I've had a number of transplanted grafted nut trees lose the graft - 
  usually due to neglect/inadequate watering during the establishment 
  year.  I just let rootstock shoots grow for a couple of years and 
  stick a new piece of whatever pecan/hickory/walnut I'm pursuing 
  currently on top.
