The City will be requesting proposals from experienced and qualified companies to provide various tree and vegetation removal services for Charlotte Water, as a result of water and sanitary sewer construction performed by Charlotte Water, as an after-hour/holiday/weekend emergency service, and in the event of an immediate disaster emergency within the area, such as a natural disaster.
The City shall indicate and designate all trees, shrubs, plants, and other objects that are to remain or be removed. Any damage to natural terrain, vegetation, or objects designated to remain shall be immediately repaired or replaced as determined by the City, at the company’s expense.
The company will be required, at the minimum, to perform the following:
- Rake work area and match existing grade to a smooth even surface
- Removal of trees/shrubs and haul from job site
- Grinding of remaining tree stumps
- Sweep up any excess debris and haul from job site
Provide Brush mow maintenance of city owned parcels, trash removal, minor trimming, landscaping and similar work. The work covered by this project consists of all labor, equipment and performing of all operations necessary to bush hog and otherwise maintain vacant land, fields, drainage areas or otherwise unoccupied land. Work may occur around areas with buildings to

Charlotte Water will be seeking proposals for Water Transmission Line Easement Clearing Services. These services would potentially require heavy clearing of brush, including possible tree and stump removal, for properties in which access to water transmission line easements must be maintained by Charlotte Water. Service areas and boundaries will be identified by Charlotte Water. The selected firm or firms shall also be responsible for the removal and disposal of vegetation.
Once initial clearing has been completed, scheduled maintenance clearing of the easements will be planned with a standard frequency.
