The digging should be one during the dormant season for your area.
In Ithaca, we fetch dormant bare root trees in late October or early November for fall planting, mid-April for spring planting.
Trees should not be leafed out - in fall most dormant trees have lost their leaves; in spring dormant trees have not yet broken bushlopping.bar Size: 1MB. Sep 27, Usually these plants are dug when they're dormant and then refrigerated until it is time to ship them to you.
This system can work really well for many trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennials. Bare root plants weigh less and are easier for the seller to ship. Once you place the plant in the ground or in potting soil and add moisture, the plant will start to grow bushlopping.barted Reading Time: 4 mins.
Jun 01, In contrast, you have to think carefully about when to plant bare root trees. That's because bare root trees need to be planted when the tree is dormant, in the early spring or late fall.

Evergreen live oak trees (Quercus spp.) add liveliness to sandy, coastal and rocky landscapes where they withstand salt spray and drought due to their adaptive root systems.
If there is a"tap" root holding it in, you can slice through it at about 18" deep with your very sharp shovel. On a 2" elm, I would start about 24" out from the trunk (4' diameter hole) but the same depth. Like Ken said, timing is important. The sooner the better. 2" is getting a little big for bare root but it can be done with care and luck.
