Description

Project Type: Minnesota Public Lands Early Successional Habitat Management

 Bids are being considered by the American Bird Conservancy for the mechanical treatment of up to 40 acres of 1-4” diameter brush in designated stands in project areas on public lands managed by Aitkin County located in or adjacent to Section 7 T51N R23W.

Contracted labor is targeted for completion between 12/01/2018 – 3/31/2019 and may be completed only under frozen ground conditions.

Desired Stand Conditions:

Targeted post-treatment habitat conditions include the thinning of the dense shrub cover. 1-4” diameter brush species will be cut and larger individuals of any tree species retained as leave trees for internal structural diversity. Project sites will retain ALL trees > 5” diameter distributed as individual spaced overstory trees (approx. 10–15/acre). Where possible, sapling tree species will also be retained as residual cover. Project areas may also retain well distributed shrub clumps when tree cover is not present or as directed in order to maintain an average of 25-35% residual woody cover and structural diversity throughout the project sites. In the absence of canopy trees of any age that can be retained for residual structure, clumps and patches of mature brush species will instead be retained such that post treatment stand conditions retain approximately 10-15 shrub clumps per acre.

Total acreage of designated stands: 38 acres

Total acres to be treated: up to 40 acres

 Sealed bids will be received until: Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 at 4:00pm
