What They DoNursery workers work in nursery facilities or at customer locations planting, cultivating, harvesting and transplanting trees, shrubs or plants.
Two states license nursery workers: Arkansas and Idaho. Both states require only payment of a fee: $10 in Arkansas and $100 in Idaho. These requirements are the 101st most onerous of the 102 occupations studied. Because so few states license nursery workers, the occupation ranks as the 96th most widely and onerously licensed occupation in the study.
