Michigan’s Green Industry – Continuing to GROW!

About the Industry
With a combined economic impact of $5.715 billion, Michigan’s nursery, perennial plant production, Christmas tree, sod producers, landscaping and lawn care industries continue to grow!

* We are the 4th largest Nursery State in the Nation!

*#1 specialty crop in Michigan
*Landscape services and Retail Sectors = $4.5 billion economic impact
*Together, all segments of the Green Industry account for a total of 36,162 individuals employed (Knudson & Peterson, 2012). According to US Census Data, this equates to 1 out of every 170 Michigan citizens between the ages of 18-65.

About Us

In early February, MNLA did a fax survey of our members to assess the impact of the proposal to eliminate the Michigan Business Tax and replace it with an across-the-board tax on all C Corporations located in the State of Michigan.

The results showed that the negative impact on our membership would be substantial and were shared with our lobbyists at the Michigan Farm Bureau. Michigan's Lieutenant Governor Calley's office released a draft on February 8, 2011 of the new Michigan Corporate Income Tax that would replace the Michigan Business Tax and surcharge. This draft is attached for your review.

Please, if you haven’t already responded, let me know if this will have a negative impact on your business by sending me an email to:  amyf@mnla.org.
