Black gum tree with dead tap

The Black Gun tree I got last year, the top died so I had to cut it off about 8 inches , Is there anything I need to do to make it grow taller now?

A Good Start

I ordered 3 of the wildgum trees; the 6-7 ft tall variety. The ordered arrived quickly and was well packaged. One of the boxes had slight damage on the outside but the plant inside was fine. I unboxed them immediately and stood them up right to allow them to get fresh sun and air. The trees looks healthy and have good leaves. later that evening i planted them. I used Kellogs Tree and Shrub soil. That is what the fastgrowingtrees expert via phone suggested. I was told to expect little to no growth the first year as the trees look to develop root system in their new home. years 1-2 expect to see moderate growth and then eventually the 'fast growth'. For reference, Fast growth is up to 3 feet a year. Moderate is up to 2 feet per year. and slow growth is up to 1 feet per year

Love it!

I bought this tree last fall when a storm brought down my sycamore. I had been researching trees for the last few years since I know the sycamore would have to go eventually. When a storm last summer took the tree out I was excited because I had found what I think will be the perfect tree. I love it already - the leaves are gorgeous.
