Choke Cherry Trees

When may I transplant my Chokecherry tree?

beatil added on April 7, 2015 | Answered

I have a chokecherry tree I planted 10 years ago. It was in a shady area and never grew. I just read how the deer eat it so that answered one question. I want to move it into the sun. When may I do so? It is still somewhat cold here in NY. Thanks so much. Leslie

Generally speaking early spring is the best time to move your tree. After the ground has thawed and before the new growth starts. You could also move the tree in the fall.

I have listed a few links with more information.

The following article will give you guidelines on moving established trees:

My research indicated that chokecherry trees could be successfully transplanted in
the spring and fall. Their roots are said to be fibrous and not very deep.
