Very bad copy - return asap.

You know, I did spot this myself and I couldn't fully explain it which is why I never mentioned it. Thing is I went off and tested that phenomenon on other subjects after I saw it and I couldn't genuinely replicate it again. I agree it looks de-centred but there are also slants at play here in the scene (not everything is as even in real life in that image as it might appear) though I think you're right about the trees too.

Wouldn't de-centering show up on the wall shots too?

You cannot asume that the fence and the trees are exactly at the same distance with regard to the focal plane. You can only check for de-centering by photographing a flat, two dimensional surface. The fence and trees are likely a DOF issue not de-centering.
