UAP Timberland s Four Step Vegetation Management program

 

UAPT will consult with our government customer and design an Environmental Vegetation Management Program that focuses on a holistic Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy.  UAPT has the resources that enable them to provide an environmental vegetative plan that focuses on prevention, minimization of disruptive practices, and quality assurance.  Our goal is to derive value for both the government and UAPT in an IPM system.

 

The plan is sustainable, cost effective, and each step in the process is driven by timely and accurate information.  It will center around four major vegetation control areas that compose the majority of vegetation control issues found on federally managed lands (i.e. military installations).

 

The basic components of the plan are designed to increase safety, land use capabilities, and sound environmental stewardship through innovative and proven vegetation control technologies.  The final deliverables include, but are not limited to: a written comprehensive vegetation management plan complete with treatment area maps, prescriptions, recommendations, execution and supervision of the plan, post treatment evaluation analysis, application and product performance guarantee, and a long-term maintenance plan.

 

Step One:  Our program begins with an on-site assessment of all vegetation management needs.  Vegetation control issues are prioritized on a holistic IPM strategy that identifies the areas according to their level of importance and needs.  This is done by using both in-house resources and selective partners that when combined form an IPM system that supports the federal government's strategy.  By category these resources/tools include:

 

            Pest Assessment

                ◊  Remote sensing at various resolutions can be combined with ground sampling to provide a cost effective solution

                    to assess the location and extent of the pest.

                ◊  An example of this technology is the use of high resolution imagery to locate where pests are and are not and then

                    using ground sampling to determine data (i.e. size and severity).

                        ◊  Provides the ability to map target area and maintain data about the area.

                        ◊  Enables user to analyze impact of pest and record data useful in control decisions.

                        ◊  Used in conjunction with a GIS system to accurately define the target area.

                        ◊  Utilized in conjunction with treatment application, it can provide precision guidance, data on where treatment was applied,

                            and other relative navigational data.< /font>

                        ◊  Visually define treatment or sensitive areas prior to any ground or aerial herbicide applications with an environmentally

                            approved water-based latex paint.

                        ◊  In combination with GIS, TimberMark's painted line around the treatment area enhances public accountability.

  • Written professional management plan based on data collected.

 

Step Two:  Based on the assessment, we will provide recommendations for your vegetation management solution.  Products and application methods will be selected to ensure that unwanted vegetation will be controlled within a favorable human and environmental safety context.  If a herbicide application is selected as a viable option, product selection based on the complex nature of the data collected in step one is critical.  Additionally, application methods and product selection will be consistent with the federal government's integrated natural resources plan.

 

            Pest Management

 

  • Application Management

                       

                        ◊  Experienced on-site management team to ensure a safe and effective pesticide treatment (i.e. aerial, skidder or

                             tractor mounted, backpack & manual application).

                        ◊  Drift Management plan is provided to ensure an environmentally safe application.

 

  • Application monitoring and guidance tools

                       

                        ◊  Strategic application partners, utilizing an approved pest icide delivery system that incorporates GPS assisted swath

                             placement and large droplet spray technology.

                        ◊  Application equipment can provide both guidance and flow control and information can be extracted into a GIS and analyzed.

 

  • Transfer of data collected into government's GIS

                       

                        ◊  Digital and hardcopy information provided to government in a usable format.

 

Step Three:  It is extremely important to make sure that a treatment is both cost effective and safe.  An integral part of IPM requires that treatments be evaluated to determine their degree of effectiveness.  UAPT will evaluate the results to continue to refine and improve the goals and objectives set forth by the federal government's Integrated Natural Resources Plan.

 

            Results Management

 

  • Field data collected at the appropriate time for post treatment analysis.

                       

                        ◊  1-10 rating on the effectiveness of the treatment.< /p>

                        ◊  Cross-reference the rating with weather, time of year, application rates, site characteristics, etc.

 

  • Quantitative data is integrated into a larger comprehensive database across all government management scenarios.

                       

                        ◊   Results can be cross-referenced by application type, spec ies controlled, or product.

                        ◊   Demonstrates government's adherence to fiscal responsibility "are we getting what we paid for?"

                        ◊   Using a database an effective application scenario can be selected for a given treatment regime. 

                        ◊   The database provides benchmarking for certain applications.

                        ◊   Possibly change the timing of a treatment.

                        ◊   Over time this database can be used to calculate a reduction in the amount of pesticide needed to do the job (IPM).

 

  • All applications are covered by a product and application performance guarantee.

 

Step Four:  Using data collected in Steps One and Three, it is important to develop a Sustainable Integrated Pest Management Plan to reduce the amount of pesticides used to create the best vegetation management scenario.  A sustainable plan can maximize land utilization and minimize the cost of vegetation management over time by using timely pesticide application or suitable alternatives.

 

            Sustainable Recommendation

 

  • Annual visits to monitor vegetative status

  • Evaluate an array of management options available

  • Select an IPM solution that meets the goals and objectives of our Government client.

 

Accomplishing the Task:  The final deliverables include but are not limited to: a written comprehensive vegetation management plan complete with treatment area maps, prescriptions, recommendations, execution and supervision of the plan, post treatment evaluation analysis, application and product performance guarantee, and a sustainable recommendation.

 

Small Business:  It is UAP Timberland's policy is to use small business contractors to provide the qualified goods and services consistent with UAP Timberland's 4-Step Integrated Vegetative Management Approach.  Historically, UAPT provides vegetative control services with subcontractors that are either local or regional in size.  Characteristically, these applicators are relatively small, but are UAP Timberland approved, highly qualified, and experienced in the region and vegetation array necessary.

UAP Timberland LLC - Company Overview 

UAP Timberland, LLC is a joint venture owned by United Agri-Products and Timberland Enterprises, Inc.  Timberland Enterprises, Inc. was founded as a corporation in Monticello, Arkansas on March 1, 1983 as a herbicide distributor for the forest industry. Over the next ten years, Timberland grew to servicing the entire Southeast.  In 1987, Timberland created an operations division to manage herbicide application contracts.  This service division, PineBelt, is still in operation today, and has contracted over 1.5 million acres with timber companies, forestry and conservation organizations, and private forest landowners.  In 1989, recognizing a need for our brand of service and expertise, Timberland expanded its business into the utility, right of way, and industrial vegetation control markets. By 1999, Timberland Enterprises had become the largest distributor and vegetation management company for the forestry and industrial market in the eastern US, with sales and distribution facilities from Maine to Texas. 

United Agri-Products was incorporated in 1978 and has become a worldwide leader in the distribution of crop production products, operating on six continents around the globe.  In 1991, UAP began their first concerted effort toward servicing the forestry and industrial vegetation control markets.  This effort culminated in 2000, when UAP Industrial Services was launched to segment that aspect of their business.

As Timberland continued to grow in the East, UAP Industrial grew likewise in the West; and as both organizations looked to expand their business, the synergies between the two organizations became apparent.  Consequently, Timberland Enterprises and UAP created the joint venture, UAP Timberland LLC (UAPT) in February 2001.  

Combining assets, UAP Timberland now assumes a sales and logistical presence throughout the entire continental United States, making it the only total vegetation management distributor dedicated to servicing the forestry and industrial vegetation control markets nationwide.  UAPT's $130 million in sales makes it the number one provider of vegetation control services in its market.

As an industry leader, we have the national strength (60 vegetation management professionals with an average of 20 yrs experience per professional) that guarantees the financial stability and market position necessary to offer innovative products, services, and solutions all with a commitment to environmental stewardship.
