Moving Abberviatees

I know I spelled it wrong but can I move them to a different location? I'm not sure how to attack this being winter and what not. Is there anyway I can plant them somewhere else right now? They are about 8-12 ft. tall.

They are a relatively easy transplant for their size both in terms of effort and survivability. It would be much smarter to wait until late winter to do this, but if it has to be done now, it can be (assuming your ground is not frozen).

Yah I would wait until late winter but probably even spring are they already in the ground or are the heeled in above ground in baskets.

They are in wooden forms above the ground because they are in front of a school. If I was to do this now do I have to put any special fertilizer in the hole that I plant them in?

I would break up the soil and add peat to the area you are planting them in. I would also add a product called M ROOTS to the soil will help for the transplant shock. It has 12 species of mycorrhiza spores that will keep the arbs. healthy and give them some root growth in the spring.

Yah you can but if you can get them to let you to wait to move them that would be ideal. As long as you give them enough room around the roots when you dig them you should be ok.
