transplanting Acer mandshuricum
I've read a lot of the threads about pros/cons/risks of transplanting palmatums and dissectums in fall vs. spring. Does the same go for trifoliates?
I have a 2-year old one that is in too sunny a spot and all the leaves are quite scorched. I would like to move it to a shadier spot. I would prefer to do it in the fall if there is not too much risk.
The root ball was quite small (about a "gallon" size) when it was planted spring '06. Maybe I can get all the roots with minimal disturbance.
would you take a chance doing it now?
