Best to do when dormant, depends how large these trees are, if they are less than 2 feet, a good shovel is probably fine, larger trees need more roots...

If you want to save the trees and are in Georgia it will be hard to do so unless you wait until fall. Then you can move them bare root by carefully diffing up as much root reasonably possible and lifting the tree.
