    Planting Black Walnut trees

    Hello Gang--

    I grew 12 Black Walnut trees in my tree garden along with some free trees from the Arbor from saplings this past summer. The Black Walnut trees are really doing well. I intend to transplant two or three to a permenent area in my yard. But the spot I have seleccted always sees a stiff NW wind in winter.

    I am debating, do I wait till spring or transplant now so that the root sytem may take hold before the freeze sets in? This also stands true for the Arbor Bur Oak which also did really well in my protected tree garden.

    What is the best time to transplant 1 year old trees? In the fall before freeze or in early spring?

    Many thanks,

    RE: Planting Black Walnut trees

    Mark,
    The weather in the spring and fall can either be perfect for transplanting or horrible. It really depends on the weather and the area in which you live. Fall planting works very well if you transplant them as soon after leaf drop as possible and take measures to limit drought stress on the plant through mulching. If you transplant them and do not have rainfall or snow cover then it's very important that the trees be watered every week if the temperatures are above 40F. The cold north winds of November and December contain very little moisture and will dry your trees out in no time.
