An Urban Tree Care Conference
January 17th & 18th, 2019

Trees can be planted year-round, if care is taken; however, if possible, avoid planting during the hot summer months.. Fall planted trees generally suffer less transplant shock, as the demand for water is going down and the roots can still grow a bit into the new site. Trees planted in late winter, near the end of dormancy, tend to do well also. Planting during the hotter months requires more care to maintaining appropriate soil moisture through the transition period, and the trees may show more signs of transplant shock (drooping or dropped leaves, for instance).
