Over the past year, Florida's Division of Plant Industry (DPI) has received hundreds of "Notice of Rejections" involving Florida nursery stock shipped to several California counties. The following is specific information taken from the past years' notices:

*       Top three counties most often issuing rejections include San Diego, Alameda and Santa Barbara counties.

*       The majority of these notices list "destruction of product" with the remainder being returned to shipper or authorized treatment

*       Snails, ants, and scales are the most common reasons for rejections

To avoid rejections of nursery stock, DPI suggests you inspect all plants prior to loading and take the necessary actions if pest issues exist to ensure they are free of all plant pests.

DPI also strongly advises that you consider the necessity as well as possible consequences of shipping nursery stock into San Diego County until a more reasonable rejection policy is implemented.  DPI is in communication with the county and is trying to resolve this issue.

If you have any questions about shipping into California, please feel free to contact Mr. Bryan Benson at (352) 372- 3505 ext. 162 or Mr. Tyson Emery at ext. 154.
