Request for Quotations

The City invites Quotations from experienced and qualified Contractors for the provision of everything required including all skilled labour, tools, materials, equipment for Arterial Road Inspections and any other requirements. All equipment must be road worthy and suitable for working on City streets.

The arterial road inspections are to ensure that all high profile roads meet the City’s Urban Forestry Section maintenance standards. This inspection is primarily for aesthetics (note: this is not a tree risk assessment). Information collected through the inspection process will be used to prescribe work to the City’s tree pruning and removal contractor. There will be approximately 16000 trees to inspect. The average time spent inspecting each tree is approximately 5 to 10 seconds. Inspections will be done in April for missing daffodils and in May and September with an emphasis on assessing the following items:

  • dead trees;
  • missing trees;
  • epicormic growth;
  • dead branches;
  • crown raising;
  • tree health; and
  • comprehensive overview.

The Contractor should have a mobile device with a full time internet connection to complete the work. The use of the device is used for the mapping system and the data entry.

Crew Qualifications:  Inspector – Must be an ISA certified arborist.
