Appraisal: Wrongful Tree Removal

[Post a Follow Up] [Post to this category]
From: Stanley J Kondziolka
Brooklyn Park, MN
I am attempting to establish a value for a very old oak tree the was illegally cut down in the common area outside our townhome. The truck diametor measured about 36 - 40 " I etimated the age of this tree to be at least 75 years old. It provided shade and protection from storms. It provided an estectic value to our townhome It was removed without any notification. I am considering taking legal action against the association for their error.

Greetings Stanley:

Probably the best way to go about this situation is to contact a local certified arborist who has experience in tree appraisals. There are multiple formula methods for tree appraisals, so contacting a professional to assist you is strongly encouraged.

For a list of certified arborists in your area, feel free to check your local yellow pages or http://www.treesaregood.com/FindTreeServices/FindTreeCareService.aspx
