Absolutely not! This will result in the quick death of the tree. These trees are highly invasive here in Tennessee, but this is not the appropriate time to transplant. This is especially true with the VERY HOT weather we have been experiencing lately.

I would recommend waiting until next spring to do so. This will ensure the best chance of survival after transplant.
