Planting Trees & Shrubs
Good news!! For container-grown trees and shrubs – if the ground isn’t frozen you can plant anytime spring, summer, or fall!
Moving (Transplanting) an established plant or planting a bare root plant should only be done when the plant is dormant (meaning it does not have any leaves). Typically around early spring or late fall is best.
Evergreens are the exception for transplanting (moving from one planted location to another). These can be moved early spring before they bud out fresh growth or mid-August and throughout the fall. Evergreens can be transplanted earlier in fall than other plant varieties because of their very early dormancy.
