Delayed planting large apple trees

Posted by goudreau Me (My Page) on

I dug these 5-12 foot apple trees up Friday afternoon with the intention of planting them Saturday but I became very busy and haven't gotten to them till today. I put them in the lake to wait to be planted and they all appear to be fine but my question is, is leaving them that long in the water gonna do any damage? I'm planting them this afternoon and was just curious what yor thoughts are.
Thanks, -j

No, they should be fine- two weeks might be too much.
