girdling and planting

Bought a 15 gallon bonita ash. Critter girdled lower trunk. We did a graft on it - not sure if that helped but the tree seems to be doing well.

Should we keep it in the pot until next year or plant it this year? Wondering if the stress of transplantation will be too much for a weakened tree.
