I have an apple tree I'd like to transplant that is about 2-3 years old. what are the chances of survival, and when is a good time to attempt? if viable, anyone have a referral?

I would say asap unless the tree has blossoms or leaves.
life force in early Spring is very powerful. Otherwise wait until the tree is dormant. Regardless get as much of the root material as you can and be sure to dig a large diameter hole. Full with a good compost and mix with the soil that the tree has been growing in.
Other opinion anyone?

Best time, that I have heard, is to wait till fall to plant or transplant. I have an apple, pear, plum, nectarine and cherry tree doing great but if we have late spring freezes, all fruit is lost except the apple and pear.

If it freezes in late spring, all fruit is lost including apples and pears. Two and three years ago that happened, just...no fruit anywhere up here. Last yesr was a bumper crop...

The tree flowered last year but that was it. It just started to show buds last week. maybe I should wait till it's dormant in fall?

That would be your best bet.
Gives the tree all winter to send out roots.

In The Grizzly, According to the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, microcystis (blue green algae) releases a toxin into the water when its cells die. Ingestion of water or algae containing microcystin can create health problems for fish, dogs, cats, livestock and people.

I'm glad I checked. I would not have been happy to have driven there from RS at 5:30am... Guess I'll do this one next week.
THANKS!

Yeah that's not going to work, that's where they're filming... Unless you hoofed it around on the backside (south) side of the ridge to steer clear of the area. The helicopter will be doing touch and go's in that area.

Hmmm. The ridge route (2N21) was what I had planned. I'm not heading to Sugarloaf - I wanted to go to Sugarlump - which I think may also be known as Bear Peak. USGS calls it Sugarlump.

No, the only traffic control is for the repaving project down on Moonridge for the new Zoo. But if you're going to Sugarloaf and parking via 2N10, you cannot get through. All the filming is taking place across our ridge route, from Chair 9 over to Bear Peak, so you can't cross over the Bear Mtn Property from that direction. You'd need to hike up from the Moonridge/Lassen side or go park off Hwy 38.

Thanks Benny. So, no traffic control up to the trailhead at the end of Club View for parking?

You're fine bildo, the shoot is taking place on Bear Mtn's property. The helicopter isn't here yet, you're probably just seeing the tour chopper. There's a Blackhawk coming in for the filming, probably tomorrow through the weekend.

Hi all - was planning a hike tomorrow morning to Sugarlump Peak, starting at end of Club View. Will this be a problem due to movie shoot? Planned start 6am.
