ANLA Makes Available ‘Field-Friendly’ Version Of American Standard For Nursery Stock

The American Standard for Nursery Stock (“The Standard”) is now available as a new ‘field-friendly’ print publication from the American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA). The Standard, ANLA’s most popular publication, is now easy and convenient for industry professionals to bring with them on job sites. The water and tear-proof pages in the sturdy three-ring binder hold up against dirt, rain and other field conditions.

The Standard was originated in 1923, when ANLA began maintaining development of a standardized system of sizing and describing plants used in nursery stock transactions. ANLA’s Horticultural Standards Committee facilitates the development and vision of this publication for the benefit of the entire industry. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on May 12, 2004, the revised Standard is an essential reference for anyone in the green industry who specifies, grows, distributes, buys, or installs nursery stock.
