Planting in an old tree stump

Looking for suggestions on what type of tree to plant in a BIG old tree stump.
The cavity in the stump is 3’ x 3’ square, 2.5’ - 3’ deep.
The stump itself is 6’ tall and 5’’ wide.
There are drain holes drilled in the cavity.
The exposure is full sun.
The tree will get regular hand watering until established and as necessary afterwards.
Prefer something with a weeping canopy or at least a large canopy. Crimson maple?
Thinking about 10’ - 12’ in height for scale.
Thank you!
