The tree value calculator is a simple tool for assessing the worth of the tree, as well as the possible compensation, determined during a tree appraisal. 🌲

Have you ever wondered how much is a mature maple tree is worth? Maybe your beloved tree has been cut down by your vicious neighbor, and you're in desperate need of a pine tree value calculator?

What's my tree worth?

Trees are irreplaceable. Trees take decades to be fully grown. Trees are the source of oxygen, wood, home for birds, and relief, by way of shade, on a warm day.
That's why we shouldn't be surprised that cutting down a tree might be a pretty costly business! 🌱

If your tree is executed without your permission, you are usually entitled to a compensation. The amount of money you'll receive depends on the type of tree, and its age, measured using its height and circumference.

How do I calculate the value of a tree?

Determining the cost of mature trees is easier than you think! You'll need to:

  1. Know the circumference, height, and the type of the tree.

  2. Find the basic value, which is a conversion factor based on your tree type. To be found in dedicated tables.

  3. Use the equation:

    Tree value = Circumference × Height × Basic value

    where:

    • Circumference is given in inches.
    • Height is given in feet.
    • Tree value is given in dollars.

How to determine the value of mature trees?

There are multiple ways to establish the value of a tree.

  • You can estimate it yourself, e.g., using our tree value calculator.
  • You may contact your insurance company and demand a tree appraisal.
  • It is also possible to find a private company that specializes in tree value calculations.

If you're applying for compensation and the tree's been already cut down, you'll probably need to prepare a proof of its age, height, and circumference.

FAQ

What's the worth of a 10-year-old maple tree?

Let's say that our typical 10-year-old maple tree is 16 ft (ca. 5 m) high and 17 in (43 cm) circumference.

We'll calculate it's worth using a simple equation: Tree value = Circumference × Height × Basic value

The basic value of a maple tree is 2.44.

Let's compute: Maple tree value = 17 in × 16 ft × 2.44

Maple tree value = $663.70

And here it is! Our tree is worth $663.70. That's quite a sum! 🍁
