The best friend on earth of man is the tree: when we use the tree respectfully and economically we have one of the greatest resources of the earth.
The value of a tree in a landscape is more than simply the wood. Most fully grown landscape trees are irreplaceable. However, it you need to replace a tree in your home will cost between $500 to $2,500. And if the tree has ornamental, historical, or landmark value, it could be worth an unbelievable $20,000 to $60,000.
Why do I need to know?
- If you have ever had an accident, wind storm, or ice storm that damaged your landscape your insurance carrier needs to know the value of the tree.
- If a tree branch from your neighbor’s property hangs over your property line you are allowed to trim it. However, be careful, if you damage the tree you are responsible. In fact, you may be responsible for damaging your neighbor’s tree when you excavate dig on your property.
