Debi,

Maybe it isn't the ground up roots, but rather tha fact that there is no
tree sucking all the moisture and nutrients out of the irises.
Liquidambers have pretty strong roots.  They would have been taking
everything they could out of the soil, leaving little for the irises.

Maybe the irises "breathed a sigh of relief" and went ballistic when it was
cut down?

Just a thought.
