Help!  I just received some apple trees in the mail from a nursery in 
California which are starting to  leaf out already.  The soil here is 
thawed but still quite muddy- is it better to plant trees in wet soil 
or to hold them once they have leafed out?  Is it that critical either 
way?  I will be digging with a shovel so I can be careful, but I will 
definitely impact soil structure for the worse, and risk leaving the 
tree stuck in a compacted "pot" in the ground.  Any experienced apple 
growers out there with any suggestions?
