Hi rocknjp,

I'm posting this as a clarification.  If you feel this answers your
question, please post a clarification request for me to post in the
answer box.

First of all... Most likely I can provide you with the value of
purchasing a young Aleppo tree from a nursery in your area.  I
seriously doubt if we can find the same size. I'd need you to indicate
the area you live in - city and state.

However, if the HOA is asking you to provide a _*replacement value*_
for a large full-grown (and they grow fast and huge) replacement same
tree then you'll most likely need to contact a tree appraiser.  Tree
appraisers are able to provide that information.
To locate a tree appraiser in your area write or call the 

American Society of Consulting Arborists

Rockville, MD 20850
Phone: (301) 947-0483


The Council of Tree and Landscape Appraisers (CTLA) has developed a
list of qualified and experienced appraisers. This list is available
by contacting them at CTLA, 15245 Shady Grove Road, Suite 130,
Rockville, MD 20850 (301)947-0483.

The CTLA represents the American Association of Nurserymen (AAN), the
American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA), The Associated
Landscape Contractors of America (ALCA), the International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA), the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the
National Arborist Association (NAA).


Tree appraisal is an unbiased estimate of the nature, quality, value
or utility of this aspect of real estate. Although the best time to do
an appraisal is before the trees are removed or damaged, most
appraisals are done after such loss occurs. Records, pictures and
witnesses can help determine the trees' pre-damage condition.


Best regards,
There is no answer at this time.

Are you looking for the actual cost to purchase a new sapling of that
specific type and have it planted, or the amount of money the
responsible party should be made to pay to account for destroying a
tree of some particular age?
