The Q&A Archives: Time For Planting

Question: What is the best time of year to plant a Blue Spruce tree in my area?

Winter is stressful to evergreens because they continue to lose moisture through the foliage and a new plant's stressed root system may not be able to supply enough of it before the ground freezes.
