Fall 2020 News from MBNLA

by | Oct 19, 2020 | News & Events, Newsletters

As the ‘green’ portion of the 2020 season comes to a close, society as whole has experienced and will continue to experience circumstances that are both unfamiliar and even more so, uncertain moving forward. Most local green professionals report having an unprecedented season both in terms of how they have had to conduct business and how busy it has been. If the Covid-19 virus has taught us anything it is that as long as it is ‘active’ making a plan is planning to fail.

With this in mind many business professionals are being challenged to forecast what will happen next year. Inventory, ordering, staffing, equipment, budgeting and much more are all impacted by where the virus will be come 2021. In the green sector will fruit tree sales, vegetable sales, home landscape improvements and maintenance increases continue, remain flat or go back to what they were- no one knows for sure.
