Arb contract up for grabs in Melton Mowbray

Melton Borough Council is looking for an arboricultural contractor to carry out tree condition surveys.

The Council’s intends to catalogue the condition of its District tree stock and identify work requirements.

Data collected will include tree number, species, height, mean crown spread, stem diameter, age class, condition, recommendations for work and priority, adjacent features and hazard rating. Recommendations for an appropriate re-inspection period would also be made.

Melton said trees vary in age and species and some may require prompt remedial work. The trees may be on open public spaces, churchyards and other small parcels of land.

The contract is worth £150,000 over three years with a possible extension of a further two years in total.

For further information contact Peter Bignell of the Welland Procurement Unit, Melton Borough Council, c/o Melton Mowbray Building Society Leicester Road, Melton Mowbray LE13 0BD. Tel.  078 76 57 49 44. E-mail:
