My climbing trees were planted a little too close to each other so I want to move one of them apart from the other to give it more room. It's over 15 years old now.

Is this the best time to relocate it or I should wait until Spring?

Thanks

Always best in the late Autumn or early Spring when it's dormant and the ground isn't too hard due to cold weather to get a spade in it,.

You are going to try to move a tree that's been in the ground for 15 years. Good Luck with that.

When you say ''climbing trees'' what plant do you mean ? (Latin name would help)

@[B]Tetters[/B] Attached is the "climbing" tree I was talking about. I put a trellis against the wall behind it so it can climb onto it. I don't know what it's called. It might be a shrub and not a tree :). The gardener just trimmed it so it's much smaller now.

That is a climbing plant, but not a tree ! It is impossible to identify it from the photo you have posted, and needs a few more clues - like a close up of the leaves and maybe a description of any flowers.
It would probably be better to take some cuttings in the springtime when growth begins again - then you would have a back up if a transplant fails to work.
