Environment Canterbury is the Canterbury Regional Council who own and manage forestry blocks alongside various rivers in Canterbury. These blocks are partially managed for flood protection, soil conservation, recreation, biodiversity, and timber production.
We are seeking contractors who can conduct V-Blading, Ripping & Mounding of our post-harvest & new afforestation sites. This calendar year we have at least 80 hectares of cutover requiring replanting.
We require the successful applicant to manage the site and complete the work to Specifications prior to planting. We require the work to occur within the Period 1st June 2020 to 23rd July 2020.
This opportunity is for the initial year’s land preparation contract, plus the opportunity to extend for two subsequent years with the maximum term being three years.
Generally, we harvest and replant 75 hectares of plantation forestry a year, and therefore indicate future contracts will maintain this level of work.
Quality of work is the most important aspect to us with additional weightings on price and health and safety management.
