Any time before the ground freezes, and make certain you water it very
well after and don't let the tree settle any lower in the hole that it
was in the container or ball and burlap. Remove the wire and any mesh
if it is in a ball. Container plants can go in any time the ground is
still soft enough and not too wet to work.
I have always liked the sign at Merrifield:
Q. What is the best time to plant a tree?
Q. What is the next best time?
It's probably safe up to mid-December, although the sooner the better.
Until the ground freezes. If you have a jackhammer you can even do it
then. Deciduous trees are dormant in the winter and can be easily
planted any time.
Evergreen trees can be planted in the winter but care must be taken
because they still need to be watered for a while.
