1 Blue Spruce - 33' diameter and 20' tall
1 Pin Oak - 40' diameter and 25' tall
1 Pin Oak - 32' diameter and 20' tall.
Given these dimensions, do you have any idea of the compensation that I might receive for these trees? Thanks.
BTW, I'm in the Grove City area near the intersections of SR104 and SR665.
Wow, that's a lot to lose. I think the best thing would be to have a couple of arborists take a look. I'm not sure exactly how compensation for trees is figured, whether it's just on the cost of replacing them or on the value they add at their present state of growth. If it's the latter, you have a lot of value sitting right there.
