Transplanting a Weeping Cherry?

I have two 12 year old weeping cherry trees, and they are too close together. Can they be transplanted and if so how do I do it without killing them?

If they have been there for 12 years, no. Willows have a very extensive and lengthy root system. It would be impossible to get all the roots. We have one we wanted to move further away from where we wanted to put the septic system and the tree man told us no, that to do so, it would kill the tree.

If the roots are intertwined, you could harm one or both.
