    We're about to do some work outside which means that my beautiful Japanese Maple will need to be moved.

    Has anyone moved one before and if so, how? Do we need to wait until it drops all of it's leaves? Do we just dig it up and re-plant it in the new spot?

    TIA :?

    The quick answer is to wait until it goes dormant in the winter.

    A more detailed answer might involve more details such as; how big? what type? and type of soil?
