Is it okay to move new fruit trees?

We planted some apple and pear trees in the fall. I thought long and hard about the location, because I wanted to be sure the fruit trees got everything they needed without shading the garden we're planning on putting in. Well, I didn't think long and hard enough, because now that I'm planning the garden for spring I am afraid I didn't choose the best location for the fruit trees. How bad would it be for us to move those three trees? And when would be the best time to do it?

In your area you could move them as soon as the soil is dry enough. Sooner is better than later. I'd think they'd do fine with a move.
