Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
To get the value of the tree for insurance, liability or tax deduction purposes - you need to perform appraisal. Generally four factors are used for appraisal and evaluation of trees (or other plants) - see mor einformation here - http://www.treesaregood.org/pressrelease/press/dmgtreeworth.aspx
To translate these factors into a dollar value professional appraisal by the Certified Arborist is preferred. - http://www.isa-arbor.com/home.aspx

You need to get an appraisal - there is no other way to determine the value.You may do an appraisal by yourself, but it would be more valuable if you hire a local professional Certified Arborist.
