Operational Details
Tree and shrub nurseries may sell some incidental items such as fertilizers, insecticides, potted plants, imported trees, bedding plants and shrubbery. In some cases, in order to start growth the shrubs or trees are started in a greenhouse environment in order to give the maximum protection from the elements and are fed balanced nutrients to give each shrub or tree an optimum chance to survive.

Businesses may also deliver their product to the customer, using a tree mover or flat bed truck. The products are sold to the home owner and to commercial customers for the purpose of landscaping at places such as golf courses, around man made lakes in housing developments, in parks and campgrounds etc.

Risks to the workers include the typical agricultural exposures such as manual labour, operating machinery, bending and lifting and risks associated with planting, digging, and delivering products to the customer.
