Who Is Plant Sentry™?
Have you seen this logo throughout your NatureHills.com experience? If so, you're seeing the symbol that indicates a compliant, checked plant available from NatureHills.com to your home!
Plant Sentry™ is a one-of-a-kind database that monitors and interprets the latest information in regulatory compliance for live plants. Their ever-vigilant eye helps hold growers accountable for following State and Federal regulations set out to help protect plants during the growing and shipping processes.
Plant Sentry™ focuses on three main areas when protecting your plants: Invasive Plant Pests, Invasive Plant Species, and Invasive Plant Diseases. Each one of these areas of focus specifically relates to the same regulatory compliance requirements set forth by the regulatory officials so that your plants can make it safely from our growers to your home.
When you’re shopping our site you may notice from time to time, that a message that looks like this “We are sorry, due to state agricultural laws or shipping restrictions, we are unable to ship this item to your location. Please verify your shipping zone or call (888) 864-7663 for further assistance.” pops up. This message is Plant Sentry™ doing its job!
Unfortunately, not every plant is safe to ship from state to state within the U.S. With diverse and rich ecoregions throughout the country, some areas require more protection than others to keep their ecosystems safe. Nature Hills Nursery proudly uses the Plant Sentry™ service to continue our mission of improving all aspects of our business to exceed our customer’s expectations.
So keep looking out for the Plant Sentry™ logo and know that here at NatureHills.com we’ve got your back, only sending you the most compliant plants on the market!
