Re: Appraisal of Trees for Cultural Values

I used to be the tree consultant for a local historical site board. A
friend used to appraise trees for insurance purposes. I consider both
subjective and dependent upon context. Priceless. Irreplaceable. Monetary
amounts, in my view, were subjective, even when "formulae" were used. Buyer
and seller stuff, as when the entire property is bought and sold, is valid,
but it's impossible to determine, honestly, just what fraction of the
property purchase price was due to a tree. The tree certainly has *value*,
but price is another thing. It's not as if, say, in case of a loss, the
tree can be actually replaced.

I am wondering if anybody has experience or references for appraising trees
that have a cultural significance.

I know of increasing the value within the CAVAT system but this does not
provide me with the detail of how and why to increase the value.

Any help is appreciated.
