I want to move a Canadian Hemlock that is about 5' tall at this point. I would like to know how to do this to insure the life of the tree. Thank you.

This is a larger tree to try to transplant, especially if it has been in that spot for any length of time. Early spring would be the best time to move it. Take as many roots as possible and replant immediately at the same depth as it grew before, keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy for the entire growing season and into the fall following the move. Good luck with the project, it is a difficult thing to do successfully.
