RFP: Urban Forest Plan Consultants


On behalf of the PVD Tree Plan steering committee, The Nature Conservancy is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to assist in developing a strategic, comprehensive and equity-focused master plan for Providence, Rhode Island’s urban forest.


The PVD Tree Plan will serve as a roadmap for a shared community vision for Providence’s urban forest. This requires a strong commitment to stewardship, consistent and strategic planting of new trees, a community and constituency that values and engages with the urban forest and trees, and a network of public and private stakeholders who share a vision for a vibrant urban tree canopy. The plan will combine meaningful community-led decision making, an equitable and inclusive engagement process, and multi-stakeholder dialogue to develop long-term sustainable approaches to health, resilience, equity, and quality of life.


The two attached requests for proposals define the roles for Equity and Community Engagement Consultants and for an Urban Forest Planning Consultant. The attachments describe the PVD Tree Plan and include a sample contract and conflict of interest disclosure for the awarded consultants.


The pre-bid conference will be on January 22, 2020 with responses due on February 14, 2020.
