A: It would probably be difficult for a Pennsylvania attorney to give you an answer based on these limited facts. If you consulted with an attorney, they would likely want to review the contract between your husband and the wholesaler to see if it includes express warranties, makes any kind of representations, or contains terms that otherwise provide any kind of assurances as to the trees, among other ordinary contract law issues governing the purchase. The cost of the trees is not mentioned here, but it appears to be the type of matter that would probably be handled by a law firm on an hourly basis, so that is something to keep in mind. Good luck.
