is it too late in the season to transplant (in Wisconsin).

We had to take two huge pine trees out , over 20 feet high, and now the area looks barren. don't know whether to transplant now or wait until spring.
Plus the soil is sandy and the area is shaded.

I don't know where you are in Wisconsin, but I have transplanted many plants in the middle of October (during change of colors) at our cottage in Mackinaw City, MI. Never lost a plant yet. Would the weather be comparable to where you are?

It depends on the plant. If you think they have time to establish their root system, go for it.

The nurseries in our area (Northern Utah) have great sales for trees, shrubs and flowers in the fall. Ive been able to get Japanese Maples for $15 for a 6 ft tree where as in the spring that same tree is $70.

Make sure you put extra mulch around the base of all plants to protect thier root systems.

I love the fall garden, usually flowers will bloom 2x in the season. The colors are beautiful and its more comfortable working in the gardens.

I live in the Fox Cities, and just divided and replanted my perennials yesterday! We also planted grass seed this past weekend. This is the best time to get things into the ground....just keep it watered. We have this unseasonably warm weather for the rest of Sept.(Or so says the weatherman)

Your biggest struggle might be finding replacement trees, the pickings can be slim.

I second the 'extra mulch'. The problem is not the freezing, but the freeze-thaw cycle. Extra mulch will protect from freezing and allow root development until the surrounding ground is well frozen.

If you aren't certain, call your local university extension service, and they should be able to tell you.

we definitely won't be putting in trees, as that is what caused the problem with the root system.
We will need a new riser put on our septic tank and my husband thinks everything will be trampled, but I want to get started.
We have an odd system here. We pay for sewer, but it is only for liquids, we have to have a tank for solids. And then get the tank pumped out each year.

We are about one hour north of Madison Wi. so should be same temps as Michigan.
