Help with removing my tree and uploading a gedcom file to replace it

I started with a simple tree.  Now I have managed to export a gedcom file from my local computer family tree program.  How do I remove the existing tree and replace it with the GEDCOM file?

And at what point do I mark living people as "PRIVATE"?  Before the import or after?

Thank you in advance

We don't delete profiles. But the current arrangement for uploading gedcoms allows us to use data from a gedcom to add to profiles created earlier. This should work out well for you. See Help:GEDCOMpare for more information.

Living people are now marked as Unlisted as soon as the profile is created.
