Answer: Either fall or spring are good times to transplant landscape trees and shrubs. Dogwoods are considered understory trees. They prefer to be protected from hot afternoon sunshine, so plant in an area that gets morning sun and filtered afternoon shade for best performance. Flowering trees that will do well on the east side of your yard include ornamental pear or crabapples. They both love summer sunshine.
Best wishes with your landscape!
