The Plant Identification section is one of three sections required for the Landscape Contractor licensing exam. The Plant Identification section demonstrates knowledge of a wide selection of plants and pests. The test contains photographs of plants and pests that must be correctly identified from a list of possible specimens. All of the plants and pests that may possibly be on the exam are listed in the Manual of Professional Horticultural Practice, which is available for purchase here.
A collection of plant slides (in PDF format) is available for purchase ($25.00) below for test preparation, if needed.
We gratefully acknowledge and thank the efforts of Dr. Barb Fair, Associate Professor and Landscape Extension Specialist and Certified Arborist, and NC State University in the development of these plant study materials for the landscape, nursery and green industry.
