I have a Miho Satsuma and an Asian Pear planted 18 inches apart, they are 4 yrs. Old. which one should I relocate and when? Satsuma is fruiting. Thank you.

I'd move the Asian pear next winter as soon as it drops it's leaves. That will be the least stress on the tree. The Satsuma never drops it's leaves but could be moved next winter or early spring also. I'd feel very confident moving the pear at the right time. For me there is no good time to move a citrus but better during cooler weather.

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense because the pear tree will go truly dormant. I had planted the pear then planted the satsuma with intentions of moving the pear. never got around to it!

I moved a Rio Red citrus around chirstmas break in 2011. Got as much root mass as I could possiably lift, which is alot :). The tree was in the ground for 1 year prior to that. It didnt grow an inch last year and was pretty much in a state of shock. This spring its starting to take off again. It can be done but they dont seem to really like it that much. I wonder how it would have responded if it was in the ground longer than a year before moving?
