In response to the winter storm disaster which created widespread damage across our nursery and landscape industry, the Texas Nursery & Landscape Association (TNLA) in partnership with Texas A&M Agrilife Extension have created an official state loss assessment survey. The data is currently being gathered by Texas A&M officials and used to qualify Texas for aid from the federal government. As of May 14, 2021 preliminary data shows that the industry has reported a total of $124.8 Million worth in losses with an average loss of $733,992. Stay tuned as more data is finalized.
