Apple tree relocation?

Hi, I planted a new 3 year old apple tree 3 days ago.

In hind site I think I should have put it a bit further away from the fence. Can I dig it up and replant it  bit further from the fence (im thinking when its bigger in a few years it might be too close / restricted)

    no problem, it'll not have made any significant new root growth, so no worries there. Make sure it's well watered before you move it ( soak it then leave it until the next day )

    I agree with Hostafan, in all honesty, i moved a plum tree that had been in for a couple of years on sunday, really soaked it, had the hose trickling on to it for most of the day i moved it - seems fine image
