transplanting evergreens

Asked September 23, 2016, 8:56 PM EDT

I have some 3-4 foot tall evergreen trees that i want to move to a different location. Is Sept./Oct. a good time to do this or is it better to do this in the spring? Thank you.

I really prefer to move conifers in the spring. they just seem to do better. if we are forced to move them we oversize the root ball with a much larger than normal tree spade. if you can wait till spring i would wait.
