Now is an excellent time to transplant trees and shrubs while they are dormant. When selecting plants, keep in mind that bigger plants are not always better.
Trees that are 4-6 feet tall are usually faster to become established and more effective in the landscape than larger specimens. When purchasing a larger tree, a general rule of thumb is to measure the circumference of the trunk.
Every inch in circumference adds a year to the time it will take that tree to establish and begin to grow. For example, a tree that is three inches in circumference will take three years to establish and begin growing.
