The best times to transplant Japanese maples are late winter or early spring before it leafs out. This will give your Japanese maple a chance to re-establish its root system before the first flush of growth in the spring. Japanese maples are typically small trees and most will grow in large containers for many years. Best wishes with your landscape!
