Tender - Arboricultural Contracting Services

Read on for the latest tender from Horticulture Week's Tenders Tracker service for contractors and suppliers to the horticulture and landscape industry.

Client: Scarborough Borough Council

Location: Yorkshire and The Humber

Value: £130k

Contract duration: 11 November 2019 - 28 February 2020

Advance Tree Works, Sough Cliff Gardens, Scarborough

As part of the £7m National Lottery Heritage Funded restoration of South Cliff Gardens, an advance tree works contract has been prepared.

An independent and impartial arboricultural survey was undertaken in 2016 in order to assess and classify the trees and woodland within the park as well as historic research and a number of surveys of the site as part of the preparation of a Conservation Management Plan.

The objectives of the works are as follows:

• Increase natural surveillance and improve safety
• Reinstate key historic views within the park and across the park, from the Esplanade to South Bay
• Carry out tree works to allow for construction of paths to make the site more accessible
• Remove diseased trees so that remaining trees stay healthy
• Remove decaying and potentially dangerous trees
• Thin out the dominant self-seeded sycamore growth and weaker specimens, creating more space and better growing conditions for the retained higher quality trees and proposed specimen trees
• Improve overgrown areas offering safer access around the park
• Create space to plant new trees to restore a mixed age and species woodland
• Encourage the establishment of ground flora which will improve wildlife habitats

The tree works will be carried out between 11 November 2019 and 28 February 2020.

Tender submission deadline: 25 October 2019
