Hello, welcome to Just Answer.

You usually call your state service foresters to evaluate the tree. It will give you an independent value for it.

You then contact every potential buyer for the tree (still alive and vertical) and have them all bid for it.

You then choose the best offer.

At around 100 year old, you have a very good subject if it's a long trunk without too much branch. Usually in backyard they get lot of big low branch from too much light. Also it may be complicated to fall it as it's not in a forest area, this may impact the price in the bids.
