I've got a bunch of pecan and plum trees in cold storage waitng on the right time to plant. What's the earliest I should plan on getting them in the ground? December? January? Any time during the dormant season or post frost?

If you have them in cold storage I personally would wait until January...but I'm pretty busy in December too.

I planted 25 pecan seedlings in February three years ago.

Word of caution, deer love the tender new growth leaves!
Although the pecan trees stayed alive, I had no growth! I fenced around each tree early this spring. They have grown 4 - 5 feet this summer!

I would wait until at least December based on my past failures with trying to plant outside the normal December-January- February times.
