You want your trees to make the move as smoothly as possible, so bring them in when the outdoor temperature is similar to your home's indoor temperature. Even when daytime temps are like indoor temps, do not wait until the plants are experiencing very cold nights. Either bring them in about now, or only put them out during the day if you are getting chilly nighttime temperatures.
