    Email: Sbrunka@lebanonohio.gov

    All proposals should be submitted via mail or email no later than May 26, 2017 to: Sbrunka@lebanonohio.gov

    PROJECT LOCATION: The project is located at Miller Ecological Park at 755 Miller road, Lebanon, Ohio 45036. The improvements will be made to parcel ID 0813510020. The total acreage of this parcel is 51.9 acres, and it contains quality streams and wetlands.

    PROJECT BUDGET

    Invasive Plant Removal: $14,500
    Reforestation Tree Planting: $ 5,000
    Pollinator Habitat: $15,000

    SCOPE OF THE WORK: The City of Lebanon is soliciting bids for conducting habitat improvements for Miller Ecological Park (MEP) in Lebanon, Ohio. MEP is a 97-acre City-owned park that includes woodland and prairie habitats, wetlands, and 3 miles of walking trails. Following the Park’s ecological objective and developed Ecological Assessment and Management Plan, Phase I of the improvements will be limited to 51 acres of the Park, and include a) Invasive Plant Species Removal, b) Reforestation of Early Successional Forest, and c) Pollinator Habitat Development.

    TASK 1: Planning

    • Contractor selected for the Project will work with the City to review the site, treatment schedule and implementation methods.
    • According to the Ecological Assessment and Management Plan, the Park contains high quality plants and potential Indiana bat habitat that needs to be identified and protected before and during woody invasive removal and treatment.
    • According to the Ecological Assessment and Management Plan, the Park contains multiple wetlands. Special precautions need to be made to not disturb the high quality vegetation and grade of the wetlands.
    • According to the Ecological Assessment and Management Plan, the Park contains multiple headwater streams. Special precautions need to be made to limit the amount of debris and soil in streams.

    TASK 2: Removal of Targeted Invasive Species

    The Project is divided into two sections within the parcel for invasive plant species removal (Exhibit A and B). Each section is equipment accessible with areas of probable manual work due to fencing or water restrictions. Targeted species for removal are prevalent in each section and are named below. Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has separated non-native species of Ohio into three categories: targeted species are the most invasive and difficult to control; well established invasive species pose moderate to serious threats to natural areas in Ohio; and watch list species are very invasive in nearby states and should be monitored. Of the targeted species present in the park, the following will be targeted for removal:

    Autumn Olive (Elaeagnus umbellate)
    Bush Honesuckle (Lonicera maackii)
    Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)
    Callery Pear (Pyrus calleryana)

    These species were located throughout the wooded areas within the parcel – including riparian corridors.

    Of the Project areas, approximately 25 acres of Autumn Olive, Honeysuckle and Callery Pear removal is needed.

    Section A: Targeted species are present in Section A, which is approximately 6.65 acres of woody vegetation (Exhibit A).

    • Contractor selected for removal will survey the section before removal to mark native trees and shrubs that can be saved. The section is approximately 60 percent equipment accessible.
    • Approximately 40 percent accessibility of the section is restricted by waterway and fencing, and will be manually treated.
    • Due to the flow of multiple headwater streams through the park, measures should be taken to keep soil and debris out of the streams, such as a mulch berm.
    • Within this section, two trees have been observed for potential Indiana bat roost or maternity roost habitat characteristics. These trees needs to be marked to prevent habitat destruction. See Exhibit D.
    • One wetland is located in this section. The Contractor will take special precautions not to disturb the vegetation or grade of the wetland. While invasive species need to be treated, the Contractor will take special precautions not to disturb the high quality vegetation or grade of the wetlands. See Exhibit D.

    Section B: Targeted species are present in Section B, which is approximately 13.8 acres of woody vegetation (Exhibit B). Approximately 10.5 acres are equipment accessible, while accessibility is restricted by strong topography changes and fencing on approximately 3.3 acres.

    • Contractor selected for removal will survey the section before removal to mark native trees and shrubs that can be saved.
    • City to provide Fecon equipment and operator for invasive species removal with contractor direction.
    • The field is dominated primarily by Eastern red cedar and should be enhanced by decreasing the number of Eastern red cedar by 25 percent.
    • Within this section, one tree has been observed for potential Indiana bat roost or maternity roost habitat characteristics. The tree needs to be marked to prevent habitat destruction.
    • One wetland is located in this section. The Contractor will take special precautions not to disturb the vegetation or grade of the wetland. While invasive species need to be treated, the Contractor will take special precautions not to disturb the high quality vegetation or grade of the wetlands. See Exhibit D.

    Timeline:

    • The invasive species removal timeline will be mutually agreed upon by the City and Contractor. If for any reason the contractor must change the start date or cannot comply with the start date, they must contact the City as soon as possible to reschedule. It is estimated that the start date be summer 2017 with a completion date by late fall 2017.

    TASK 3: Reforestation of Early Successional Forest

    Section B: Approximately 9.1 of the 13.8 acres of Section B are very early successional forest.

    Currently, the area is dominated by Eastern red cedar and is in need of additional species diversity.

    • The Contractor will plant no more than 10 percent of any species, no more than 20 percent of any genus, and no more than 30 percent of any family of native trees and shrubs.
    • Species should be scattered throughout the section to achieve spatial and biological diversity.
    • The trunks of the new plantings should be protected by tree guards installed by the

    Contractor.

    • Trees to be planted should be no smaller than ½ inch caliper
    • Species selection and quantity will be discussed with the City prior to purchasing.
    • The field is dominated primarily by Eastern red cedar and should be enhanced by decreasing the number of Eastern red cedar by 25 percent.
