what is the best time to move a pine tree.



late autumn when the sap has gone back down but before we start getting heavy frosts.

I thought pines and most evergreens are best transplanted in the spring as they are more likely to dry out if planted late Autumn, as you would do for deciduous trees.

You are right Pimpernel, though you've got to be careful to do before the sap rises.
