Established in 1951, the ALabama Nursery & Landscape Association (ALNLA) is a professional association for those involved in and allied to the ornamental horticulture industry. Our Economic Impact Study shows what we suspected to be true—our industry contributes a whopping 2.9 billion dollars, including 44,000 jobs, to the economy of our state annually. The mission of the ALNLA, a non-profit trade association whose business is conducted by an elected board of directors, is to promote the success and professionalism of its membership.
Through its annual Gulf States Horticultural Expo, educational seminars around the state and its link with other organizations both in Alabama and across the nation, the ALNLA strives to provide the information and support to make your business more efficient and profitable. Together we can accomplish goals that might be impossible for an individual business alone.
Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine
It has been determined that the destructive insect pest known as the Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis), an exotic invasive plant pest that is established in several other states, has been found in Alabama. This insect can be highly destructive to Alabama’s ash trees (Fraxinus species) and ash nursery stock. Therefore, it is in the best interest of Alabama’s citizens, agriculture, and silviculture that this quarantine be established to limit the pest’s human-assisted spread within the state.
