Hello, I noticed that your tender specifies that all non-harvest-able materials must be removed. However, because this is an airport approach, I do not think this is what you are looking for, as wind and rain erosion could be a major concern. Our approach for airports is to mulch everything and leave all mulch in place, in order to prevent as much erosion as possible. Additionally the mulch impedes future growth, lengthening the time in-between the next brushing, and saving the airport money. Would you be open to the idea of mulching instead of harvesting? Or would you consider mulching and leaving the mulch to be within MTOs expectation for "Clearing"? Our staff have worked on other MTO airports and private airports (Thunder Bay), and we feel that an "MTO clearing" approach is not ideal, mulching is faster, with less environmental impact, and significantly less erosion risk.
