New Canadian Nursery Stock Standard released
Committee chair Brett Mattson, of Mattson Tree Farms, acknowledged the efforts of all nursery grower participants, and extends thanks to the committee members Bart Brusse of Sheridan Nurseries, Aaron Krahn of Lakeshore Tree Farms and Harold Voogd of Sunstar Nurseries. “We are especially grateful to our committee members and editors Arnold Heuver and Dr. Glen Lumis for their many hours spent to review and incorporate changes and even to contribute to the new and improved format. Their efforts were above and beyond the high standards we have come to expect from our many dedicated volunteers.”
The committee intends the edition to be a living document, allowing for changes and edits to be made as necessary. The Standard will therefore be available as a downloadable PDF document only at cnla-acpp.ca/cnss. Also available for download is a list of relevant changes compiled by Dr. Lumis.
In related news, The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) and Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) are proud to announce the latest Canadian Nursery Stock Standard will be included within the Canadian Landscape Standard. Revised editions are available to anyone who has purchased the document since its release in March 2016. The Canadian Nursery Stock Standard replaces Section 12: Container Grown Plants.
