You bring up an important consideration. Here in Spokane I must wait until the ground is no longer frozen deeply and when I plant in Spring, I immediately mulch to moderate soil temps and moisture loss.
For what that's worth:

> When is the best time to transplant deciduous trees/shrubs: Fall or Spring? I figure Fall since there will be days when the temperatures are above 32 F. and root growth can, then, occur; conversely, I would expect spring just in case reduction of feeder roots could be a problem during dry weeks, free of snow cover, when further die-back occurs when the upper-most layer of the ground freezes continually.
