With a larger tree, I'd go with fall. Even after leaf drop, the roots keep working and will be better able to withstand next year's summer if given a fall head start. Of course, regular watering the first year is important. And I'd resist the temptation to fertilize the first year as well unless a soil test shows deficiencies.
