Substantial arboriculture services contract on offer

The five-year tender is worth up to £6,648,000.

London Borough of Barnet is seeking to appoint contract arboriculture contractors to deliver arboricultural services across four contracts.

The tender is split across four lots:

Tree Works West ref 702496 (comprised of 12 wards)
Tree Works East ref 702497
Pollarding and Basal Growth ref 702498
Felling and Stump Removal ref 702499.

The contract will run for a 5-year period from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2028 with the option to extend for a further period or periods of up to 3 years subject to budget constraints and performance.

The contract is for the planned cyclical maintenance, responsive and urgent tree works to the local authority’s trees in parks, highways, woodlands, and any other council sites.

The majority of works to street and park trees is programmed by the authority on a three-year cyclical, ward by ward basis to ensure the appropriate tree maintenance works are routinely carried out, reducing disruption to traffic and allowing a structured approach to area based tree work. Responsive works, within parks, highways, woodlands and other council sites are generated on a monthly basis and are usually for one-off single site works.

The closing date for receipt of expressions of interest is 10 October 2022.
