Nursery Stock Distributor License Application

A Nebraska Nursery Stock Distributor License is required by the Nebraska Plant Protection and Plant Pest act of any person distributing perennial or woody nursery stock in Nebraska. Initial applications must be received prior to the beginning of distribution. If not received prior to the beginning of distribution, initial applications shall be considered delinquent and shall have an additional late fee assessed of 25% per month.

This application will have an initial and an annual license fee of $97.75 for the first acre and $4.25 for each additional acre on which nursery stock is held, for each location from which nursery stock is distributed. All Nursery Stock Distributor Licenses expire at the end of the calendar year. You must renew your license annually, as long as you continue to distribute nursery stock.

Any person growing perennial or woody nursery stock must also complete the request (below) for certification of Nebraska-grown nursery stock.
