My Grandmother has several apple tree saplings that she has grown from seeds. She has offered one of the saplings to us. We want to know what time of year is the best for transplanting? Should we dig it out this fall and keep it in the garage until spring? Or could we transplant at the end of September? Is there a transplanting guide? Thank You For Your Time!

Fall is a good time for transplanting trees. The tree can take advantage of the cooler temperatures and increased soil moisture to establish its root system before it goes dormant for the winter. Below I have included two links. The first is "Planting Landscape Trees" and the second is "Ten Tree Planting Rules". All of this information and more can be found at the USU Forestry Webpage http://extension.usu.edu/forestry/hometown.htm.
