I have a Dogwood Tree that I need to transplant. When is a good time? Is there any precautions that I need to take to assure that the tree will live?

Either the fall or the spring are good times to dig and replant your dogwood. Try not to sever any main roots during the dig. It's okay to dig through some of the feeder roots but try to keep the majority of the rootmass together when you dig. I've found that soaking the area the night before the dig makes digging easier and helps to keep the rootmass together. Hope this works for you, too. Best wishes with the move.
