The Certified Nursery & Landscape Professional Program, sponsored by the New York Nursery and Landscape Association, is an intensive, on-going educational program designed to increase the skills of garden and landscape employees.

The program was designed by members of the nursery and landscape industry with assistance from Cornell University. CNLPs are trained in a wide range of subjects, including plant pests and diseases, weeds and weed control, soils, fertilizer, pruning, and much more.
