Understanding a tree or plants worth can be very valuable information when dealing with insurance claims and property value. Trees can provide more value to a site than we may consider. They provide shade to homes, air quality, beauty, sound barriers, fruit, and all of these benefits add to the value of a tree. Using "The guide for plant appraisal" developed by the ISA we are able to provide an accurate value on damaged or living plants on a property. It requires careful evaluation of the trees health and structure, the location, and an understanding of each trees natural habitat. A report can be given with values from as little as one tree to as many as 300.
