Request for Proposal: Landscape/vegetation contractors to perform removal of invasive exotic plants from monroe county conservation lands monroe county, florida

The Growth Management Division of Monroe County, Florida invites proposals to remove Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council-listed species (Category I and II; see or contact Monroe County Land Steward for a list) from Monroe County owned or managed conservation lands. The project goal is the eradication of invasive exotic vegetation from selected publicly owned conservation lands in Monroe County.The project consists of the physical removal of all Category I and II Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC) listed species occurring on selected Monroe County conservation lands, followed by herbicide application and chipping of all resulting biomass (except as described below for bowstring hemp and leadtree seeds). The contractor will manage the project including the scheduling, subcontracting as necessary, labor, monitoring and reporting progress. The County will supply locations and maps of project sites. The success of the project depends on the thoroughness of the invasive exotic removal. Work must be performed during normal work hours (between 8 am and 5 pm), Monday through Friday. No work may occur on weekends or on holidays observed by Monroe County. The County conservation lands contain a wide variety of exotics ranging from grasses to large trees. Different areas of the Keys have different species of concern but Brazilian pepper, Australian pine, Asiatic colubrina, lead tree, seaside mahoe, non-native scaevola and bowstring hemp are the most abundant. Most of the sites include a mixture of native vegetation and invasive exotic vegetation. The native vegetation must not be disturbed during the invasive exotic removal. The majority of the sites will be located in uplands, but a few may be adjacent to wetlands (including mangroves). Heavy equipment may not be used in wetlands and mulch may not be placed in wetlands. Technical questions are to be directed, in writing or faxed, to Beth Bergh, Monroe County Land Steward, 2798 Overseas Highway, Suite 410, Marathon, FL 33050, or fax to (305) 289-2854.
