The best seasons transplant pine trees in central Oregon are spring or fall. It is vital for the soil to be moist around the plants being dug up. Smaller pine trees do better, because the roots are smaller and not as established. Take as much of the original soil with the plant as possible; the less the roots are disturbed the better chance the plant will have to grow.
