Summer 2020 News from MBNLA

by | Jul 21, 2020 | News & Events, Newsletters

Four short, or long months ago, depending on your perspective, could anyone have imagined the unprecedented demand for products and services provided by the green profession? Although there may be those who unfortunately struggled with the circumstances the world has been facing, almost every sector of the green profession in Manitoba has flourished both in spite of and because of COVID-19. Garden centres and greenhouse growers, nursery operations, arborists, and landscape maintenance and construction companies as well as the various suppliers of these operations, have reported sales far beyond what would have been anticipated and far beyond what “normal” would be.

Growth and demand however do not come without their challenges. Tight supply chains, in some instances, have made for long lead times when ordering or products simply are not available. Planning for next year will also present challenges. Will the public purchase what they did this year? How much of what happened this year, will carry over into next year? Clearly this will depend on the state of the world come next spring, but for many, planning and ordering will start this fall with likely still much uncertainty.

In the present, the good news is that most green profession businesses will survive this year.
