Tree Service Contract with the Town of Ellicottville

- Tree Removal
- Tree Pruning
- Brush Clipping

- Emergency Services (response w/in 4 hours of notification)
Each year, the Town of Ellicottville anticipates providing a “Not to Exceed” (NTE) dollar amount to the contracted tree service company to cover any of the above needed services throughout the calendar year. The tree service company will work with the Town Engineer and/or the Town Highway Superintendent to develop a preventive maintenance schedule and performance timeline for the coming year.
The purpose of this contract is to establish a regular preventive maintenance schedule for trimming trees, limbs, and other debris from the Town Road Right-of-Way (ROW). The Town has approximately 55 miles of traveled roadway and the common ROW distance is 50 ft (25 ft on each side of the road centerline). A yearly preventive maintenance program will help protect the public from falling limbs and will help increase the longevity of the roadways.
