You can transplant your queen palms now, in the fall. Because the temperatures are cooler, your palms will suffer less transplant stress. If they've only been in the ground for 2 years, the root system has probably not enlarged a great deal. When properly watered, the roots will be directly beneath the palm and radiate out about a foot from the trunk. Begin your digging one foot away from the trunk and dig down until you're under the root mass. A ten foot tree will probably need someone to support the trunk and another person to dig the hole. Water your trees well after installing them in their new sites. Best wishes with the move.
