When is it a good time too move a small magnolia tree?



Late autumn of early spring whilst the tree is dormant. If trunk diameter is more than 4 inches could be a challenge to move at all.

And it may well sulk for ages - they hate root disturbance. If its been in less than 2 years, try to get a solid clump of soil around its rootball when you do move it, so it doesn't realise.
