Help! Am I being overcharged for trees???

I'm building a home in Florida and per HOA regulations (strict) need to have a certain number of hardwood trees in the front, back, and side yards. The landscaper that is contracted with my builder is charging $2500 for EACH live oak (has to be 6 caliper - can't get around that per HOA) or magnolia. I understand there is "shipping" and planting charges along with the actual tree itself but good God these are not made of gold! Landscaper saying there is tree shortage and price increase but I feel like $2500 for each is highway robbery. Am I being ripped off or is this legit???
