As long as the ground is not frosted solid you can go ahead and plant your fruit trees. I mean if it is hard to dig with ice which is unlikely. If you recieve any frosty nights after the trees are planted the worst that will happen is this years buds may be damaged. This is no big problem. You could even cover them with a sack or old bed sheet on particularly frosty nights. Gpi the site admin has a good post on apple tree planting you should have a look at http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=392
