The Bear Story

Bears are amongst one of the most adaptable and versatile mammals on earth; their behavior stirs awe, wonder and curiosity as well as fear in the best of us; all of which can also be said about trees. During winter the bear will go to a cave or to hollow tree trunk to hibernate, not because of the cold, but because there is a lack of sufficient food to be found in the winter.

During hibernation the bear can lose upwards of 40% of its body weight - burning their fat for fuel – they don’t eat or drink.

Tree Values

Trees are responsible for so much more than just surrounding you with comforting ambiance. In fact, trees provide timber, food, paper and refuges for wildlife. They also work to replenish the environment with oxygen and filter pollution. In addition, they provide sound barriers and shade canopies. All of these benefits and more make it possible to measure your tree’s monetary value.

Recent studies estimate that your tree may account for upwards of 15 percent of your property’s value. However, this figure is dependent on which appraisal method is utilized, how many mature trees you own, where your tree is situated and on the assessment factors (listed below). Please note that your tree’s value may vastly differ to that of your neighbor’s regardless of whether their identical or not.

At Branch Management Tree Service, we have competent appraisers who will work to provide you with the best and most accurate assessment of what your tree’s monetary value is. If you are landscaping your property for the first time, it is important to plan for the highest return on investment, and to seek the advice from professionals for the best placement. We recommend that you:

  1. Plan your landscaping taking into consideration your tree’s beauty as well as functional value.

  2. Reduce casualty loss by protecting your investment. The best way to do this is to perform annual preventative maintenance techniques.

  3. Take before and after pictures of your landscaping, trees and plants. This helps to expedite the processing of insurance and IRS claims.

  4. Check your insurance policy. In most cases insurance companies only pay for the replacement value of your landscaping. Some may pay a maximum of $500 for any one tree or shrub, but this is still a far cry of what they may be worth when mature.

  5. Keep accurate records of your landscaping and real estate appraisals.

  6. Consult the professionals at Branch Management Tree Service early on, ensuring you’re covered each stage of your tree’s life, and to make sure you don’t suffer needless financial loss.

Assessment Factors

  1. Size - The first step in assessing a trees monetary value is to measure the tree’s height and trunk diameter beginning at ground level. Some assessors may measure your tree’s branch spread and its bark thickness.

  1. Species – Since no two trees are ever the same, the species of your tree can greatly alter your tree’s monetary value, in one of two ways. Simply put, some species are worth more than others, and may be more desirable than others.

  1. Condition – Evaluate your tree’s overall health, vigor and condition. Is it free from insect infestations, disease and damage? Is it structurally sound? These are all determining factors when considering a tree’s condition and value.

  1. Location – The old adage of location, location and location applies not only to real estate but is also a critical component to the assessment of your tree’s value. When assessing location it is important to consider site, placement and aesthetics.
