    Is it too late to transplant?

    Well, I didn't get all of my heeled-in trees planted this spring as I hoped. I still have 150 trees or so that I heeled-in back in April--some shellbark hickories and mostly Norway Spruce.

    My question now is: should I wait until fall and dormancy to plant them or can I go ahead and plant them through the summer? They are doing fine where they are--just a messy planting, of course. But they've leafed out and added some growth.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I tried this under a different title and there were no responses, so I try again . . . Quirky? Treeman? Randy? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

    You shouldn't transplant trees when they have leaves on them. You should wait for the daytime average highs in your zip code to get down to around 45-50F this fall and transplant them on a day which is cloudy, cold and rainy for best results.

    Thank you! It also saves me all that work for the time being. Fall it is.

    Or you could be like us in northern Minnesota and have 45-50 with cloudy, cold, and rainy conditions in the 2nd week of June!

    I'm sure all of my recently planted trees love it.. everything else hates it. It's been on of the coldest spring/early summers on record.

    I figure that's what Thanksgiving break is for. It's just cold enough that everything is dormant and some physical work outside keeps me warm, but it's not so cold that I have to worry about the ground being frozen or the temperature being brutal (at least in my area--near St. Louis). Also, I get the full week off work . This gives me adequate time to do my Fall planting and to get my mulching done.
