Appraisal & Inventory Reporting
Trees and shrubs have many values, both for their beauty and for the value added to the overall landscape. Current data supports that the value of trees and shrubs can increase the total land value by 8 to 25 percent. The problem with the cost of restoration / replacement / repair is that this approach can be practically impossible in some cases. In the case of replacing a 50-year-old hardwood tree, it is difficult to estimate this value. Placing a dollar amount on the aesthetic value is often very subjective. Due to practical reasons, a competent professional appraisal is frequently used in establishing the value of landscape trees and shrubs for a variety of reasons such as:
- Potential risk / hazards
- Monetary value
- Insurance property claims
- Environmental changes
- Damage by construction equipment
- Real estate purchases
- Nursery stock inventory for purchasing businesses
How Your Trees and Shrubs Are Evaluated
At the Rayal Tree Care Company, our professionals are experienced in existing guidelines for this evaluation. These guidelines have been widely adopted in the field and are recognized by insurance companies, the courts, and in some cases, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Without it, homeowners attempting to receive compensation for damage to trees could be entangled in endless debates based on nothing else but opinions. Our evaluation will take into account tree species and size, along with tree health prior to the storm, landscape value of the tree in relation to the buildings and other components of the overall landscape, the extent of damage to the tree, and the cost of restoration both to a particular tree and to the overall landscape. We provide a written and signed report on our company letterhead for your claim.
