Cooler, wetter weather of fall is the perfect time for tree planting. During the fall season there is usually an increase in rainfall and cooler temperatures, so less watering is needed. As tree shoot growth comes to a halt, plants, trees and shrubs require less water because the days are cooler and shorter with less and less sunlight every day, so therefore, the rate of photosynthesis decreases. The stable air temperatures of the season also promote rapid root development. In addition, soils may stay warm well after the air temperature cools, also encouraging root growth. While you may think that not much is happening during the tree's dormant period, but in actuality, trees grow to establish roots in new locations before warm weather stimulates top growths which sets the tree up for success in the spring and summer.
