Holiday Wreath Shipping Information
Shipping to other states
Most states, including Oregon, do not regulate cut flowers, cut branches and products produced from them such as wreaths, garlands, door/swags and bulk branches and boughs.  Even though wreaths and cut boughs are not regulated, most states have the authority to inspect packages containing plant products.
As the Christmas holiday season approaches for the shipping of bulk and finished Christmas greens, the following information may assist the delivery of your product to your customers in other states.  The State of California’s labeling requirements are the most restrictive, therefore if your labels comply with the California requirements, the labels meet the requirement of all other states.
For bulk shipments of greens or finished wreaths your invoice or bill of lading must include the following information:
 1. Your company’s name and address
 2. Statement of Origin such as: "Manufactured in Marion County"                         
 3. The name and address of the consignee
 4. An itemized list of the products included in the consignment.
For direct market sales, your mailing or shipping label must include:
 1. Your company’s name and address
 2. Statement of Origin
 3. Consignee’s name and address
 4. Statement of contents: such as “one Holiday wreath”.
Mailing/shipping labels that do not include this information are generally held for inspection by Agriculture officials.   The shipping carton is opened and inspected to assure compliance with pest cleanliness regulations.
Note:  Pine boughs and cones in manufactured wreaths are exempt from California’s European Pine Shoot Moth and Cereal Leaf Beetle Quarantines and will not require origin or treatment certificates to ship into California.
Shipping to foreign countries
Shipments of holiday greens to customers in foreign countries, must be accompanied by a  phytosanitary certificate.  Contact the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Plant Division at  (503) 986-4644 to arrange for inspection and certification.
