When is the best time to plant trees?
The best time to plant trees is during the dormant season, particularly either in the autumn just after the leaves have dropped, or in the spring before trees bud. The key is to make sure the tree has the chance to establish a healthy root system before it tries to develop new growth. Transplanting is very stressful for trees, and having a well-established root system makes things much easier when it starts trying to deal with the summer heat.
It is possible to plant trees during the growing season, but they need proper care and handling if they are going to flourish. As experienced arborists, we can help prepare the ground and make sure your tree has the best possible start in life.
