Fall planting for bare root apple and cherry?

Posted by oldryder (My Page) on

Didn't plant any new trees this spring due to foot surgery. would like to replace some dead trees but have never done fall planting.

1. is fall planting for bare root apple and/or cherry an acceptable option?

2.are there any special considerations different than spring bare root?

as always thx. in advance for info or suggestions.

ps. getting apples (finally) off my 5 year old semi-dwarf trees. 3 year old std. rootstock Van cherry still no fruit. seems like it'll be a couple more years at least. Seems like Van cherry is marginal for my area.

A couple cherries on 2 year old montmorency cherry, optimistic for next year on those.

Bare root fruit trees are only available during the dormant season, usually January here. With fruit trees that don't go dormant such as citrus and avocado they are never available bare root. However if you had them they would be good planted in the fall. Al

I don't what zone you are in but Stark Bros., Raintree and Miller (and many more I am sure) have available bare root fruit trees for November shipment.

I am in the Hudson Valley in New York and that date worked for me.
