Shipping requirements

  • Contact ODA to arrange field inspections prior to harvest and certification. 
    • Provide at least five (5) days notice before the actual shipping date when requesting certificates.
  • Complete an electronically filed application on the Phytosanitary Certification Issuance and Tracking System (PCIT) for shipments out of the US and for states with this requirement.
  • Submit a list to ODA including all growers and growing locations from which Christmas tree harvest and shipping will occur.

Inspections and certifications are provided by ODA. All shipments require a shipping permit available from ODA, but only a few destinations require phytosanitary certificates.

  • All bills of lading, invoices, and bills of sale should bear county of origin, as well as the name and address of the shipper.
