Our moving company knocked down a 25-30 year old ash on the front lawn. The tree is irreplaceable. What is the best formula to estimate the value of the tree to the house?

Thanks

Lisa

Is the mover's insurance company getting out their checkbook? If they are ready to settle this you need a consuting arborist to put a reasonable value on the tree. If you are going to have to fight this in court you need a lwayer to determine what measure of damages your state allows. IT might be "value to the house" as you say, or might be a value separate from the land and house. That detremination will tell you if you need a consulting arborsit-tree appraier or a real estate appriaser or both.
