Moving Japanese Maple?

dedtiredOctober 19, 2009

I have a Japanese Maple "Shaina". It's been quite happy in it's spot for three years. Now it needs to be relocated as other shrubs are encroaching on it.

Is this a good time to move it? Mid to late October in Zone 7, Pennsylvania? I am just outside of Philadelphia. I meant to do it a bit sooner, but didn't get to it.

Thank you for your advice.

After leaf drop, yes. Or you could do early next spring before the leaves grow.
