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?

Whoops, didnt put it in while dormant, storebought tree. It didnt do much its first year but didnt die either. I think itll put on some good growth this year, apples are still a couple years away...

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.

It's a tossup between Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher for the best modern-day Paladin.
