Grades and Standards

FNGLA embraces the use of the Florida Grades and Standards for Nursery Plants to help ensure high quality trees with good structure and greater longevity are used in Florida landscapes. Use of the Grades and Standards must be accompanied with the understanding that applying terms and standards to live trees is a subjective process, application must be practical and reasonable, and training or knowledge of tree biology, maintenance and production practices is needed. Trees should be graded based on any updated Grades and Standards as published by the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services' Division of Plant Industry (DPI). Any specifications beyond the Grades and Standards must be communicated to all parties in written form prior to delivery of the trees and plants. Download the Paper (PDF)
