Total Quantity or Scope

Carmarthenshire County Council (“the Council”) is seeking suitably qualified and experienced Contractors to undertake Ash Dieback and other tree felling works within a Dynamic Purchasing System (“DPS”). At this stage, the Council is considering an initial period of four years which includes the option to extend in one year periods for a further period of up to four years or until the agreement is no longer fit for purpose. Carmarthenshire County Council has the second largest length of highways network in Wales, covering 3,500km of public highway, with 110 schools, some of which contain an extensive number of trees. Also maintained are parks, playgrounds and open spaces. We also maintain land on housing estates and social services establishments, Council owned buildings and leisure centres. The proposed DPS will predominately deal with the removal of Trees infected with Hymenoscyphus fraxineus (Ash Dieback). A survey undertaken in 2019 of the A and B roads in the County identified trees for removal as they are showing more than 50% dieback of the crown. Recent school surveys have highlighted sites that need trees removing. Trees showing at least 50% dieback of the crown during our surveys have been tagged with orange ribbon or marked with orange spray paint. Diseased trees within the highway verge will be removed by the County Council. The Council will also liaise with private landowners and will be offering its services to take down trees adjacent the highway provided they agree to pay the costs for felling and provided it does not impact on the overall programme. Contractors will be asked to identify separate costs where an opportunity exists to work with private landowners.
