I would plant any trees I'd already bought and hope for the best with them, but undisturbed tap roots might be better at finding little crevices and anchoring themselves well. I believe Sepp Holzer does this and then grafts seedling fruit trees with desired cultivars.

With fruit trees the biggest issue is with watering. It takes a lot of water the first year to get them established, but after that they are pretty hardy..
