Charter Township of Oakland
4393 Collins Road
Rochester, Michigan 48306
Proposals must be submitted in a sealed envelope marked: “RFP – 2019 PAINT CREEK TRAIL WOODY VEGETATION MANAGEMENT.”

A required pre-bid meeting will be held Wednesday, February 13 at 11:00 am to inspect selected sites. Meet at Paint Creek Cider Mill, 4480 Orion Road, Oakland, MI 48306 to view areas representative of the conditions along the Paint Creek Trail.

Background
The 2019 Paint Creek Trail Right-of-Way Woody Vegetation Management project involves clearing woody vegetation along the Paint Creek Trail right-of-way between Dutton Road and Gallagher Road. Project sites include natural areas with rolling terrain. Project site is a multi-use trail with a limestone surface and 4 to 6 foot mowed edge. The trail is a former railroad corridor, so the terrain often drops steeply after the mowed trail edge. The primary target is woody vegetation less than 4-inch diameter that is encroaching into the trail corridor, including both native woody plants and patchy to thick infestations of non-native invasive woody plants, including autumn olive, common buckthorn, glossy buckthorn, and oriental bittersweet. The goals for managing woody vegetation are to facilitate user access along trails, prevent future hazard trees, and to begin the ecological restoration process.
The purpose of this solicitation is to identify a contractor who will work in a professional manner to control woody vegetation on project sites. Work may begin March 14, 2019 and must be completed by April 15, 2019. Contractor must understand that timing is very important for this project. To prevent oak wilt, work should be done when the daily high temperature is less than 50 degrees. An offset mower with mulching head or equivalent should be used to shred woody vegetation. Equipment, operations, and timing should minimize soil disturbance. Project boundaries and desirable native trees that should not be removed will be marked by Oakland Township Parks and Recreation staff before work begins.
