The three year contract is set out in three lots: 

Lot 1 - Bare-Root Conifer
Lot 2 - Bare-Root Broadleaves
Lot 3 - Cell-Grown Conifers

The total estimated value of the Framework Agreement over the entire period, including a possible one year extension, is £6.2 million GBP exc VAT.

The Framework Agreement will be for the duration of 3 years, anticipated to commence June 2019 with an option to extend the Framework for a further 12 months.

The Forestry Commission is currently made up of several parts and in Scotland the Forestry and Land Management (Scotland) Act 2018 completes the devolution of forestry from Westminster to Holyrood. Under this Act, Scottish ministers will set up a new executive agency: Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) responsible for the management of the National Forest Estate.

The deadline for submission of tenders is 17 April 2019.
