Timber to be cut and removed under this contract consists of approximately 25,000 tons with an estimated product breakdown of 5,000 tons of pine pulpwood/mulchwood and 20,000 tons of pine chip-n-saw logs. This is only an estimate. The Air Force does not guarantee any quantity or product amount. The Air Force will also receive full price for any wood culled due to improper sorting. b. All trees should be utilized to a top diameter of 2.5 inches unless extreme branchiness makes utilization to this size impractical. All top-wood greater than 16 feet in length shall be removed c. All trees shall have a stump height of three inches or less above the ground. d. The contract will be for a period of 9 months. An extension up to 24 months may be granted if approved by the Base Forester. e. Harvesting shall begin within ten working days after "Notice to Proceed." Starting of work can be delayed only if approved by the Base Forester. f. All trees designated for harvesting shall be removed from the work area before operations are moved to a new location. The area shall be cleaned and then inspected by the Forester before the crew moves to a new location. Areas that are determined to be excessively wet by the Forester shall be worked at a later period. g. Trees not designated for removal under this contract which are cut, felled, or otherwise seriously damaged through negligence by the contractor's operations shall be paid for by the contractor at the rate of $3.00 per inch in diameter, measured across the stump if cut or 4.5 feet from the ground (DBH) if uncut. Trees for which the contractor is so charged shall be considered as designated trees and at the contractor's option may be cut and removed. TP-04. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS: a. The Base Forester shall be contacted either in person or by telephone, (863) 452-4119 ext. 302, prior to performing work under this contract. b. To avoid any conflicts with other natural resources programs, endangered species, wetlands, or the military mission of the Air Force, the Base Forester will approve all hauling roads, skid trails, wood ramps, and trailer locations. The Forester will determine which timber stand will be harvested first and the harvesting order of the other stands. Harvesting operations may temporarily be halted or be restricted to certain periods of time to coincide with the overall management or the military mission of the installation. c. All environmentally sensitive areas shall be avoided by all of the contractor's operations. The Base Forester will identify the boundaries of these sensitive areas prior to initiation of work. TP-05.
