                Dear Ivan, In Spain we use �Norma Granada� as a method to
calculate the value of trees (obligatory in Madrid, Barcelona, A Coru�a and
more cities�). This method offers a section to calculate partial damage (for
example in trunk or roots). If the damage is over a determined % of total
damage, the value is total. Now We are working in a new version (the last
one is 2006) and we are including more services and disservices. 

                Other option could be to calculate the value before and
after the damage and the difference between them is the lost value. Best
wishes. Pedro.

Can anyone point me towards any precedent whereby a diminution in value
has been ascribed to trees that have been damaged but not written off?
Damage such as bark wounds and broken branches caused by a neighbours Bobcat
for example.



Or does anyone have any suggestions as to how a diminution in value might
be ascribed to a mature tree with a small bark wound that is likely to heal
in 5 years or so (for example), or a larger one that might heal over in 10
or 20 years but not without some decay setting in, or to a branch that
should be removed as a consequence of the damage.



I know that CAVAT, Hellliwell and itrees can be used to calculate the
value of a tree. I also know that a value can be attributed to the work
necessary to replace a tree or to prune out damaged branches. But what about
damage to part of a tree; damage that does not really require additional
maintenance costs; damage that might not even shorten the life expectancy;
but damage that upsets the aggrieved owner of the tree none-the-less.



How might a court value such damage?



Any suggestions and pointers will be greatly appreciated.



Ivan
