Contract Awarded - Tree Survey 2022

This Tender is now closed.

Tavistock Town Council is inviting quotes from contractors with the relevant skills and specialist knowledge to conduct an inspection of the trees owned and managed by the Town Council for the purpose of tree risk management and to assist with the drawing up a schedule of appropriate and necessary work. 

The Town Council owns and manages approximately 25 sites comprising area of public open space, play parks, cemeteries and churchyards, allotments and car parks.  

A tree survey is undertaken biennially, the last survey was completed in December 2019.  The survey identified approx. 150 trees requiring management and in 2017, 250 trees.

The survey undertaken should be a ground-level visual assessment of the exterior of the tree looking for signs of structural failure/damage/disease.  Further detailed investigation e.g. aerial inspection should only be undertaken in agreement with Tavistock Town Council and does not form part of this quote. 

The tree survey should also identify any over-looked tree maintenance issues e.g. removal of tree stakes, guards and ties.

The contract will be awarded on the basis of best value and not necessarily the lowest price.  The estimated value of the contract is in the region of £5,000.  The selection panel will be meeting on Tuesday 22nd February and notification will be sent to the successful and unsuccessful tenderers by close of play that week.
