I am a tree grower and would like info on when are the best days each month to transplant trees. thank you.

When gardening by the Moon,

When gardening by the Moon, many people prefer to plant or transplant trees when the Moon is between full and last quarter (to focus on root development to help the tree establish). To find the times of the Moon phases in your area for each month, visit: http://www.almanac.com/astronomy/moon/calendar and put in your zip code. Determine the best times, climate-wise, to plant in your area the particular tree that you are interested in. Then, working within those dates, find out the best time according to the Moon’s phase.

If you are interested in astrology, the best days to plant or transplant are when the Moon is in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, or Taurus. To find when the Moon is in these signs for 2017, go to page 245 of The 2017 Old Farmer’s Almanac, or for a small fee, you can download this table here: https://store.almanac.com/product/2017-astrology-moons-sign-calendar?lis...
