Is it possible to successfully move an Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum that is now approx 7ft tall and when is the best time to do so?



Hi Elless and welcome to GoY. You will need to wait until autumn now when the sap has gone back down to move your tree and will need to make sure you dig out a very large root ball so that the tree does not suffer from too much shock. Keep it watered whilst it reestablishes itself.
