Pam,

Sorry to hear about the loss in your park! Unfortunately I don't have information on legal contacts or resources for making such assessments. If it comes to assessing the value of trees, the best resource is to consult with a certified arborist. They have access to the databases needed to assess tree value by size, species, condition, etc. The following link will provide a listing of certified arborists in your area according to the specifications you select:
