Right now is the best time to plant trees this spring. Cold it is now yes, but the brutal cold is over for this year and cold/cool weather will be your friend for this situation. Watering is all important for new trees and soils will stay moist to wet as long as the weather stays cool. Beware however that we could go directly into summer with who knows what temperatures. It will be important for you to monitor moisture levels for several years for your new trees. Mulching and watering properly should care for your trees quite nicely, assuming everything else is right.
