Separating Fruit Trees That are Growing Close Together

I have a cherry tree and some how a pear tree also popped up next to that. Both trees bear nice fruits. How do I separate them without damaging either one? I would like to transfer the pear tree somewhere else. Thanks.

For the last several years they've been recommending planting 3 fruit trees in 1 hole to conserve space, I have 2 sets of 3 trees and all are doing well so don't worry about it just leave them as they are, if you're getting fruit and good growth don't bother disturbing them.

That will be a lot of digging to move one of the trees & both might die. I would let them stay as is to see what happens. They will need lot of TLC to (water & fertilizer) to make big fruits. Good luck.
