Specifications include, but are not limited to: Introduction Definition of Products. The definition that follows will standardize products. Pine Straw. The product of natural leaf cessation of any pine species that accumulates on the forest floor. As it pertains to this contract, pine straw will be designated as the straw that lies beneath and adjacent to pine trees of any age, color, and quality. A bale is 14x14x28 inches in dimension and will be the basis for unit price. 5.2 Pine Straw Requirements/Specifications. This contract will begin as a three year contract with the option to renew annually. The method of compensation will be on a per bale basis. The awarded contractor will be responsible to produce a reasonable amount of bales per year. Yield will likely fluctuate from year to year, so a reasonable amount of production will be assessed by the contractor and forester on a yearly basis. CBJTC logging tickets will be used to track loads. In the event of a partial load, the amount of bales will be written onto the load ticket. This portion outlines the objectives and guideline of this contract. The area is approximately within sections 5, 6, 7, 8, 17, 18, 31, and 32 of T6S and R23E. The area is approximately 408 acres in size north and south of CR 225 in former DuPont mining areas northwest of Kingsley Lake. Approximately 304 acres of the area are occupied by pine potentially suitable for raking straw. The stands are separated from one another by interior roads, open areas, and some wetlands/ponds. They consist of slash/longleaf/loblolly pine plantations originally planted on 6x10 spacing, 10-13 years in age. The approximate yield of straw is estimated to be somewhat variable per acre per year. Hence, the contractor will be responsible to assess the resources for their feasibility of production. The use of herbicides, mowing, and fertilization is encouraged, but care will be taken to ensure adherence to federal and state regulations pertaining to their use, as well as to Florida BMPs. There will be an initial inspection of equipment for the presence of exotic invasive weeds, and at any time equipment leaves and returns by the post forester
