As long as you can source quality trees and plants, fall planted trees will do better than spring planted trees everything. Despite what it looks like to the naked eye, trees are growing in the fall and winter. Yes no leaves or branches are growing but those same trees are working hard growing their root structure.
A fall planted tree will be ready to hit the ground running come spring time. While a spring planted tree will still be recovering from transplant shock. Yes it is hard to source qunaitity plant material in the late fall but if you can I would recommend you do it. I have seen the advantages over and over again throughout the years.
