Chicago Park District


Contract No. P-12038 - Rapid Response Tree Services

Specification Number: P-12038
Title: Rapid Response Tree Services
Description:

RFP for Rapid Response Tree Services.  The CPD manages an urban forest of some 250,000 trees.  Storm events and disease outbreaks can cause extensive tree damage or loss, either of which can overwhelm our in-house forestry staff.  To minimize such effects and reduce the risk to public safety, appropriate responses must take place as soon as possible after these occurrences.  Therefore, we are inviting the submission of proposals for rapid-response tree services at any CPD location.  All CPD locations are within the limits of the City of Chicago.

There will be primarily three types of work:  (1) storm-related tree damage response services, (2) Dutch elm disease control services, and (3) tree and woody plant health-related services.  The eventual awardee(s) must be prepared to have a project manager available to the CPD via cell phone on a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week basis, and an appropriate crew (or crews) ready to start work withinn 12 to 24 hours of emergency notification.
