I moved an apple that was at least ten years old one time. It was
Cox's Orange Pippin on seedling and it filled the back of a pickup
truck. I took a circle of roots nearly six feet in diameter. When I
got it to it's new home I dug a hole large enough to accommodate the
whole root mass, backed the truck up to the hole, and slid it in. 30
years later it's still growing and blooming by our house.

I have informed the buyer using all the needed official legal documents
I will be moving the trees.
The advice that I need: is it better to dig up and move 2-3 yr old
start from scratch?
