The best time of year to plant your trees varies depending on what zone you are in. However, for most zones the best time to plant is between fall and early spring. Planting your trees in the fall allows the trees to root into ground before the dormant season. When planting trees,the hole needs to be twice as wide as, but not deeper than the rootball. The soil should be level with the top of the rootball.
