Dead sapling should not be replaced

Unfortunately a nice, new-ish sapling died outside 71 Clapham Rd. I watered it a few times but it's some way from my front door, and I was away in the first lockdown.

Could I ask that you either not replace it, or replace it in a different location? You will see from the photo that it was positioned in front of a very elegant and well looked after cherry in No 71's front garden. They clash visually, and possibly biologically too.

Sorry to fuss at you and sorry it died, but it'd be great if when you replace it, it could be in a slightly different position.

I often ask locals there to water these trees if I see them in dry periods, but it didn't work out for this little tree.
