"I'm more concerned about damage to property values, long-term effects, soil remediation, ancillary expenses and less about my actual trees". Exactly. If I try to sell, I have to list that it has tainted soil, who wants to buy something like that? I wouldn't. Right now my yard is horrible, dead trees, dead bushes, pine needles everywhere and with the hurricane moving in, the wind will be bringing down more branches and needles.
