A: If you sell your house "as is" you are leaving the property to the new owner the way it is with all of its flaws and conditions in conjunction with the terms of your contract of sale. Typically, if you are moving out of house, you take your personal belongings and anything else that was excluded from the sale. Did your attorney craft any clauses in the contract regarding the trees? Have you spoken with the new owner to see if you can take the trees? They may be open to you removing them from the yard, it's a good idea to have a discussion with them or have your attorney or real estate agent do this for you.
