If the trees are still young, then you can transplant them further away. If they are more mature, you can transplant them but it is a little more tricky. It is good to keep in mind that with most species of trees, roughly 80 percent of that tree is actually underground. What you see above the ground can be as little as 20 percent of the tree.
