Environment Canterbury is the Canterbury Regional Council and owns and manages 2700 hectares of plantation forestry around the region established initially for soil conservation purposes around the braided rivers. The forests now are an integral part of our Regional parks providing recreational spaces and biodiversity opportunities.
We are requesting offers to purchase the trees for harvest on 53 hectares of Environment Canterbury’s land between the period 1 May 2020 – 30 August 2020. We require the purchaser to manage the harvest and to pay us by:
• Weight and grade, or
• Composite price by weight
It is important to us that the maximum value is extracted from the forest without compromising the safety or health of workers or members of the public. It is also important that the harvest is managed to fit around ongoing stop bank construction and recreational use of the forest.
We are committed to plains forestry for protection reasons and while the proposed contract is for one year, it has terms for extension for up to two additional one-year terms on additional volume.
We expect to be harvesting through and beyond this three-year term around the Waimakariri and Ashley Rakahuri rivers under this contract.
This tender has been awarded.
