Replanting a Tree


Anonymous added on December 26, 2014 | Answered

Is it okay to dig up a 2 foot tall lost maple tree and move it to a different location this time of year (late December) without any harm to the tree? Thank you for any help with this.

While it's true that if you had no other choice, you could dig up a sapling at this time of year, replant it, and hope for the best, early spring is a much better time. Transplanting is stressful under the best of conditions, but adding the rigors of winter weather (unless you're in zone 8 or above) really reduces your chances of success.
