Love your blog!
I'm planning on starting my first raised veggie bed this year but the only place with enough sun is where two columnar aspens currently live. I'm planning on moving these to a new location but have heard you shouldn't move trees until after the last frost! Is this true? The trees seem pretty hardy and I was hoping to move them before May 1. What's your advise?

Thanks Julie! You will love veggie gardening in a raised bed! I'm pretty sure moving trees in late April should be fine, as they will already be conditioned to the outdoor temperatures etc., but I'm checking with an arborist for you just in case. I'll let you know when I hear.

Hi again,
Got an answer for you from Adair Tree Care, a trusted tree company:
Most trees are best moved just after dormancy sets in. Basically when the leaves are coming off the trees in the fall. Next best time would be after the new growth has finished in the Spring/Early Summer but before root growth starts in the late Summer (August).
So there you have it. Maybe you could get your raised bed built and ready to go, but just plunk it down in place a little later than you originally hoped...?


Interesting! I had no idea. Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!
