You didn't specify which kind of tree you want to plant, but spring is a great time! Right now should be perfectly ok, considering the mild winter we've been experiencing and assuming you can find trees available for purchase this early..

Conifers, however, do better in the warmer soil of late summer, thereby making the months of August and September the ideal time to plant them.
