What's a tree worth?

A recent ERD Court decision regarding the illegal felling of  lemon scented gum on Millswood tells us a about $6000. And yet it could have been $120,000. The problem with the result is that it sends a strong message to developers that asking for forgiveness and getting a teeny fine is better than asking for permission.
Not the tree in question but a similar one
