Please note that I do not value individual trees or tracts of timber via this forum as tree value, or tracts of forest land, must be determined on-site. However, listed below are three steps necessary to estimate the value of a standing tree:
Step 1: Determine “gross” merchantable volume, in board feet, contained within each tree. To accomplish this task, you need the standing tree’s diameter measured at 4.5 feet above ground line; merchantable log length in feet; and a local volume table based on tree diameter and merchantable log length.
Step 2: Determine “net” board feet by subtracting any obvious physical defects from the above “gross” board foot volume estimate; this result is termed net tree volume.
Step 3: Multiply net tree volume by its appropriate stumpage value while simultaneously accounting for tree quality/grade (veneer, grade log, blocking, tie logs, firewood, etc.).

Even though these steps are relatively simple, I believe it is now pretty obvious why it is practically impossible for me or a timber buyer to “value” a tree via email or the internet—relatively precise measurements are needed and a visual assessment of each tree/log is necessary because tree/log quality is such an important factor when estimating timber value(s).
I can give you ballpark numbers all day, but they would be practically meaningless without visually inspecting and measuring each tree!
