Updates to the Florida Grades and Standards for Nursery Stock are in progress! At today’s LIAF Monthly Members meeting, John Conroy of Fish Branch Tree Farm addressed the group regarding updates to palm grading standards. Revisions are moving towards assessing overall health of palms and away from aesthetics.

The Palm Standards are in revision at this time. If you would like a chance to discuss changes in progress, you may contact the committee through Fish Branch Tree Farm.

Additionally, a position paper has been published regarding use and interpretation of the Grades and Standards. Let us know what you think!
