Hello,

I live in suburban Buffalo, NY. I want to transplant some red maple trees to my front yard (south facing) and I'm wondering how late in the year I can do this. I know fall is the best time to transplant trees, but I won't be in the house until October and I don't know if this is too late. Any ideas? Thanks.

You may wish to research this a little further as far as a red maple is concerned,but usually,so long as you can still dig in the soil you can transplant hardy trees and shrubs.Also,during late fall you are usually advised not to fertilize as feeding disrupts the normal dormancy pattern of the tree.A Cooperative Extension Service in your area could give you specifics and it's free!
