The Forest Administration intends to spend EUR 280,000 on afforestation in five Montenegrin cities.

Just over 460.000 pieces of black and white pine and spruce seedlings will be afforested for these funds.

The largest number will be afforested in the territory of Pljevlja - more than 330.000 pieces, while there will be 36.000 in Berane, 31.800 in Mojkovac, 30.000 in Bijelo Polje, and 26.400 in Nikšić.

This job also requires preparatory work, which involves the mechanical and manual removal of unburned wood and shrubs and collecting them in piles at a distance of 20 meters.

“The Health and Forest Restoration Measures Program prescribes measures and activities for the afforestation of burned forest areas for the year 2019 fall planting. Since afforestation activities need to be completed by the end of 2019, shortening the public procurement procedure for the submission of bids would save valuable time and be able to timely contract operations on afforestation of burned areas,” the tender documentation of the Management Board posted on the Public procurement portal states.

Those who apply for the tender must, among other things, submit the health certificates of the planting material, i.e., that it is of the prescribed quality - A class.

In October last year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, i.e., the Forest Directorate, announced a tender for the afforestation of burned forest areas in the value of 200.00 euros.

This tender was for the territories of the municipalities of Kotor, Pljevlja and Zabljak.

The tender was won by the only joint bid submitted by the company from Niksic “Monteno Maks - nursery Vir” and “Taxus Forest Project” from Pljevlja.

The contract was signed in early November last year.
