Maple trees are best transplanted in mid-spring when all winter frosts are over and before the heat of summer. Plant in a location that has rich-loamy soil and is sheltered from strong winds. Dig a hole four times the width of the root ball and deep enough so the root ball is covered with dirt. Water and fertilize regularly to ensure proper growth.
