Need transplanting advice on Japanese Maple ASAP

ddeaver613April 25, 2007

I am subdividing my property and selling my house. My new modular home will be delivered in a few months. I have 2 Japanese Maples that ate about 10 years old and 3 ft. high. I want to put them on my new property, but want to wait until the land is developed. I want to remove them and put them in containers before I put the existing house on the market. I was told that I needed to do this within 2 weeks. However, the buds opened up over this past weekend around 4/21 after several warm days. Can this still be done and will they survive in a container and when can I replant them again? I live on the East Coast (Zone 7) Please advise

Just get a large enough root ball, keep it hydrated and in the shade until you replant. You may want to wait until fall to replant.
