[nafex] Re: Moving An Apple Tree

Unfortunately, September is the absolute worst time to move a tree, 
in my opinion, this is just the time that it is putting its sugars 
down towards the roots, if I understand the process correctly. It 
needs water to do this, but transplanting it will nearly cut off all 
water, the leaves will dry out; the flow of  sugar to the roots will 
be cut off. The roots need the sugar to start growth the next year. 
However, if you can wait till the tree goes dormant, in November or 
December, that's usually if not always, the very best time to 
transplant an apple tree. Good luck, hope you can save it.
