Climate plays a major role when deciding the appropriate time to plant a tree. Freshly planted trees do well when temperatures are moderate, and are given ample amounts of water. The tree will need time to develop roots before the onset of heat and dryness of summer or freezing temperatures of winter. Spring and early fall are the best planting times.
