# How is the price of a tree determined, the calculation sits more than 50 lakhs! Here is the complete formula

Hasdev of Chhattisgarh on social media (Chattisgarh Hasdev Case) There is talk of cutting 4.5 lakh trees and eating them. Along with this, the order of Surajpur Collector of Chhattisgarh is also going viral on social media. In this order, some money has also been fixed according to every tree. The special thing is that now the price of a tree is being told in the order, there is a lot of discussion on it. Indeed, the cost of a tree in this order (Tree Price Rate) Only Rs 150 has been told, after which the ruckus has increased and this price is being told very low.

In such a situation, the question is that if the cost of a tree is 150 rupees, then how can the cost of a tree be estimated. Is the price of a tree estimated on the basis of the wood of the tree itself or are there some other parameters to decide the price of the tree. So today we tell you how the price of a tree is decided.

Let us tell you that there is generally no formula to estimate the value of the tree. However, last year, the Supreme Court, while hearing a case, had told the price of a tree and also told the formula to find the cost of each tree. In February last year, in a case in West Bengal, the court had told the formula to find the value of the tree. Let us inform that at that time the West Bengal government was going to cut 356 trees to build five rail over bridges. This work was to be done for National Highway 112 on a 59 km route at a cost of Rs 500 crore, but a person filed a PIL against this decision of the government.

During the hearing of this case, a committee of the Supreme Court had said that so far 50 trees have been cut and 306 trees are left. In such a situation, their price can be up to 220 crores. The age of the trees for which the report was made has been considered up to 100 years and the price has been fixed on the basis of that. Now the question is, how is the price of a tree decided?

### What is the formula to know the value of a tree?

The committee of the Supreme Court has given the price of a tree according to one year and the cost of one year of age of a tree was 74 thousand 500 rupees. According to the committee, the price of a tree cannot be decided on the basis of its wood alone. The price of the tree can be decided on the basis of the price of wood in the market as well as the oxygen, compost, facility and age of that tree.

In such a situation, if the annual cost of the tree is Rs 74.5 thousand, then the cost of oxygen in it will be 45 thousand, the cost of fertilizers is 20 thousand and the rest will be of wood. If a tree is 50 years old or 100 years old, then its value can be extracted by multiplying it. It was also said that the amount of tree felling can be clubbed with the cost of the project concerned.
