Module 2 of the Storm Planning for Urban Forest Books.
Storm planning for the urban forest involves the establishment of a storm team that includes arborists and emergency management personnel (see Module 1: Tree Risk Assessment). Standing contracts are an important tool for this team to employ in the storm planning process. A standing contract is one that goes through the competitive solicitation and procurement of services prior to a weather event happening. Standing contracts for disaster cleanup response are typically for tree removal and pruning, debris removal, and debris monitoring services.
