The Q&A Archives: Planting Fruit trees

Question: Can I plant fruit trees in the Fall? What precautions should I take?
I live in Pennsylvania.

Answer: You can plant fruit trees anytime the ground is not frozen. I think it's easiest on the trees to purchase them bareroot in late winter and plant them while they are dormant, but you can certainly plant one now while it is leafed out. Water regularly until the ground freezes. The roots will continue to grow until the soil temperature drops below 40F. Best wishes with your new fruit trees!
