The boys planted some of the "helicopters" from our maple tree last fall and we now have several maples about 18" tall growing in the flower bed. Would like to move them into the yard. When is the best time to move them? Seems to me that dad transplanted trees in the early spring.

I tried to post and it didn't show so here goes again....I transplanted some Dogwoods from the surrounding woods in late February/early March and all survived and are doing well. I'm in figure your region into it. Actually you can transplant now with success but, keep them watered and they should go into dormancy very quickly with fall coming. I wouldn't wait much longer.
