Is it OK to move a young sour cherry tree now, or should I wait until spring?

We're in Zone 6, just north of Boston on a windswept hilltop. We're starting some renovations to our yard and I have a 4-year-old sour cherry tree that's in the way of the eventual new driveway. We don't *have* to move the tree right now - the crew can work around it. It will take 3-4 weeks for them to finish the project, so it could be mid October before the tree gets moved.

How late in the season is too late to move it? Or should we wait until spring? And either way, should I remove the blossoms next spring to give it a chance to recover from the move?

I have the same question about a couple of 4-year-old blueberry plants.

Thanks!
