when is the best time to move a small tree



It rather depends on the type and species as some trees transplant better than others.
Broadleaf or conifer?
Deciduous or evergreen?
Age and height would be helpful as well.
Location of new position (sunny, shade, partial shade, windy, frost pocket, etc.).

as a basic rule of thumb you have 2 windows with trees .either late autumn or early spring . id choose early spring as the plant will soon start growing and putting new growth down .stjohntongue is right to so its worth looking on google if your worried.
