Have some where near 70 to 80 maple trees of different types from sugar to crimson kings I was going to trans plant once the leaves came off. Mid November and they still had their leaves just lost them in the last week.

The ground could freeze any day now so is it to late to transplant now?

I think I would wait because all they really have is root energy. I mean if they are in a pot by all means, do it, as they will be warmer in ground than above, but if you are digging them up the certainly some of the roots will be damaged.

In bonsai we wait till spring to take a tree out of the ground. When you notice the new leaf buds starting to swell the time is right.

Then, instant winter with that giant snow we got a couple of weeks ago. Shirt sleeves one day, shoveling out the next. So much for gutter cleaning!
