Answer

Certain deciduous trees (those with fleshy roots and some others) will transplant well only in the spring planting season. Examples are beech (Fagus spp.), birch (Betula spp.), magnolia (Magnolia spp.), maple (Acer spp.), oak (Quercus spp.), sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), tuliptree (Liriodendron tulipifera), hornbeam (Carpinus spp.), poplar (Populus spp.), willow (Salix spp.), ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), hawthorn (Crataegus spp.), and ornamental cherry (Prunus spp.).
