Statement of Work The Santa Clara Valley Water District (Valley Water) is requesting proposals from qualified (licensed) contractors for Professional Arboriculture and Tree Work Contract Services to include: a crane assisted tree removal service for the hazard tree program, on an "as requested" basis. The contractor will need to be able to conduct tree trimming and removal work in areas where access is compromised due to development, utilities, and natural features that must be avoided. The crane size is critical in avoiding obstacles and harvesting large trees or tree parts where access by traditional tree removal equipment is not possible. At times, the bidder may be required to work alongside other Valley Water tree work contractors

The work under this contract shall be awarded prior to September 30, 2019 for work commencing on or around October 1, 2019 and continuing until June 30, 2021.

Valley Water anticipates the need for crane assisted tree work for future projects including the removal of numerous large (40¿ DBH) eucalyptus trees from a confined riparian area adjacent to residences.

The environmental actions of the Valley Water are overseen by numerous agencies at local and state levels. Special care is required in sensitive riparian areas where tree work is conducted, and environmental permit requirements are expected to be followed. Valley Water biologists work closely with staff to avoid or minimize impacts to local birds and wildlife during tree work projects.

Annual Best Management Practice (BMP) training given by District staff is required and BMP checklist shall be completed daily by contractor.

Questions regarding this bid must be addressed in writing to Senior Procurement Specialist Dannette Lewis email: dlewis@valleywater.org
