Default Best Time of the year to plant Oak trees?

I have been wondering when is really the best time to plant trees here in Hungary? I am conflicted. 2 of my friends say in the early Spring and several other people are telling me in the Fall in early October. If it matters I am planting oak trees.

We planted 10 bare root fruit trees this time (autumn) last year and they have all survived. I guess they get the wet of autumn and the the wet of spring before the dry of their first summer.

The oak trees I plan to plant have a 80 litre plastic pot with the roots contained within. The trees are 3- 3/ 1/2 metres tall with about a 12-14cm main trunk.

I have planted bare root trees before back home and had about a 70% survival rate. I think they were out of the ground too long when the nursery shipped them. I think it was the shipping company's fault. No matter, the ones that survived made great trees within 5 years.

If you are planting potted trees then it doesn't matter when you plant them. Just make sure you water the in well (Although frozen ground is not good nor should you let the trees whilst in the pots get frosted because the roots can get damaged)
