SUMMARY OF STATE NURSERY-STOCK SHIPPING REQUIREMENT AND PLANT
QUARANINES AND REGULATIONS AFFECTING INTERSTATE SHIPMENTS
The information contained in this summary was compiled from material
received. from the plant quarantine official of Arizona and has been approved by him. It is issued for the convenience of plant quarantine
inspectors, shippers, transportation agents, truckers, and others concerned in the interstate movement of 'plants, plant products, and other
materials subject to State regulation on account of plant pests.
The summary for Arizona gives the general requirements for shipplhng
nursery stock into that State, as well as digests of the State plant
quarantines and regulations affecting interstate shipments. An appendix
furnishes information on post-office requirements for mailing plants
as well as terminal-inspection procedure. This summary does not include
digests of requirements relating to the movement of plants entirely
within the State.
The information contained in this circular is believed to be
correct and complete up to the time of preparation,' but it is not intended. to be used independently of, or as a substitute for, the original
texts of the regulations and quarantines, and it is not to be interpreted
as legally authoritative. For detailed information address the State
Entomologist, Commission of Agriculture and Horticulture, P. 0. Box
2006, Phoenix, Arizona.
In addition to State requirements, shippers will need to take into
consideration applicable plant quarantines of the United States Department
of Agriculture. In most instances these quarantines regulate the interstate movement of specified plants, plant products, and other article-s
from designated regulated areas. However, some of these quarantines regulate the movement-of certain articles into designated protected
areas. Copies 'of such quarantines may be obtained from the Bureau'of
Entomology and Plant Quarantine, Washington 25, D. C.

Establishment of Terminal Inspection.--Any State 'esiring to operate under the provisions of the terminal inspection law so as to regulate the movement of mail shipments of plants and plant products into (or within) the State may, after having provided therefor at State ex-oense arnd having designated one or more places where inspection will be maintained, arrange to have such mail shipments turned over to State plant quarantine inspectors for examination -t designated inspection points. Aplication will be made to the Secretary of Agriculture by submitting a list of plants and plant products and the -plant pests transmitted thereb-, which are to be examined. The list, when approved in whole or in part, will be transmitted to the Postmaster General whereupon postmasters will be informed and instructed.
Anyone mailing a parcel containing any plants or nlant products a,dressed to any place within a State maintaining terminal inspection thereof is required, under the law, to have the parci-l plainly marked on the outside to show the nature of the contents. Materials shipped unor Federal quarantine certificates issued by the Bureau-of Entomolog- and Plant Quarantine may be exempted from terminal insnection at the option of the receiving State.
Tender the provisions of the 1976 amendment to the law, any State may arrange through Federal channels, after approval by the Secretary of Agriculture as indicated above, to regulatp or prohibit the movement into (or within) the State of mail shipments of designated plants and plant products the movement of which would constitute a. violation of State plant quarantine laws or regulations.
Terminal Inspection Procedure.--Unon arrival in any State maintaining terminal inspection, plants or plant products narmd on the approved list will be forwarded by the postmaster at destination to the nearest inspection point. If the plants or plant products are found, upon insnection, to be free from injurious pests and not in violation of nny plant quarantine or regulation of the State of destination or the United States Department of Agriculture, or if disinfestel when they -r( found infested, such plants or plant products will then be forwarded by the postmaster at the point of inspection to the addressee unon nayment of postage.
