About

Alabama Nursery & Landscape Association

The Alabama Nursery & Landscape Association (ALNLA) is a professional trade association proudly serving Alabama’s Green Industry since 1951. Our membership is comprised of ornamental plant producers, retail garden centers, landscape installation and maintenance contractors, irrigation contractors, landscape designers, researchers, allied businesses, and others who support our mission to improve the success and professionalism of the industry. Our most recent Economic Impact Study indicates the green industry contributes 2.9 billion dollars and nearly 44,000 jobs to the state economy annually. To maintain such a significant impact, ALNLA serves the industry by facilitating a business network for industry peers, offering professional development & CEU opportunities, and providing members with legislative updates and advocacy efforts. Together, we can accomplish goals that might be impossible for an individual business alone.
