How to file loss of BIG TREE ON MY HOMESITE

In order to take a casualty loss deduction, you need a qualified appraisal of the tree or an appraisal of your property that shows the decrease in value.  Then the casualty loss deduction is listed under "theft and casualty losses" on the deductions and credits page.  Because casualty losses have a deductible equal to 10% of your income, it will need to be a fairly large loss before you can benefit.
