A BIG THANKS GOES OUT TO DR. BILL FOUNTAIN!

For providing the following updated species valuation list for Kentucky. Links:


Qualified green industry professionals are often called upon to determine monetary values for landscaped trees. This may occur as a result of intentional or unintentional damage caused by another individual, insurance claims, or condemnation of property by eminent domain. This valuation is determined by considering four factors: species, size (trunk diameter measured at 4.5 feet above the ground), condition (i.e. vigor, vitality, habit, etc.)
