Answer: Trees and shrubs can be planted any time of the year, as long as the ground isn't frozen. It's best to plant in the spring or fall, rather than during the heat of summer, so the plants aren't too stressed out. Be sure to dig a large planting hole, spread the roots out, plant at the same depth it was growing in the container or ground, and backfill with the soil you removed from the hole. You can fashion a watering basin around the trunk or stem of the plant, and fill it with water after you've planted it. Be sure to provide plenty of water all season, until the plants become established in their new homes.
