Jim, I would think it would work great. Now is the perfect time to
transplant trees here, and I assume the ground's not frozen even up
there yet. ;) I concur with Lucky, I wouldn't prune them unless you
have to for transportation reasons. They'll be fine over the winter,
and as long as you can water them in the spring, will appreciate the
extra leaves once they start growing.

Cuttings would be the easiest way to go with a number of things but I have about 30 apple trees that I have started from seed. They are from 2-3 years of age. My father-in-law has offered me his garden to help out in the move. I was considering the feasibility of pulling the apple trees (most are 3-7 feet, trimming back the trunks at least a third, and then burying them in his garden for the duration of the winter. I would pull them out in April and plant them out.
