Due to unusual and extreme weather conditions and the COVID19 impact on production, availability of materials has decreased, and the cost of materials has increased substantially.
High demand for limited raw materials, and reduced production during the last year and a half of hydroseeding fiber has increased cost. Wood fiber is not available for delivery to California until 2023 at the earliest, so it is limited to stock on hand.
Native seed has little or no availability due to the unusual weather conditions that are occurring. Several species of native seeds are not available, and those that are available are in limited supply and much higher cost.
To obtain materials that are still available, vendors are requiring payment in full upon ordering and delivery because of the volatility and high demand. We are recommending to our clients to evaluate seed and material specifications (including substitutions if not available) and to secure needed materials as soon as possible for projects that need to be completed for the remainder of this year and for next year.
Due to instability in material availability and pricing, if material costs increase prior to scheduling of a quoted project, any increase in material cost will be added.
