As long as you wait to put plants out after the middle of April, you should be okay (though I normally wait till at least the first of May). Here in Zone 7, our weather tends to be eratic. Here is a chart that may also help: http://www.veggieharvest.com/Vegetable-Planting-Calendar/zone-7-vegetable-planting-calendar/

The best time to plant anything is in the spring because the weather is cool and it rains more. This helps plants establish better. Early fall is also a good time as it is cool too, but with a little less rain.

No matter when you plant, you need to make sure that you are watering your trees well, even if it rains. This article will help:

Q. Zone for Tea, South Dakota

What zone is (57064) Tea, South Dakota in? 4 or 5? When I have ordered various trees from various places, I have been informed we are in Zone 5; yet, when I check the zone chart, it seems to indicate we are in Zone 4. I’d like to plant a two or more Sour wood trees, as well as two or more Golden Raintree trees. They both say Zone 5. Would these survive here, or might they even thrive here?

All the zone charts I checked show you in 5A.
