UMass Extension Weed Herbarium


One of the primary missions of UMass Extension is to provide aid to practitioners and others in solving problems.  We interact directly with Green Industry professionals through a number of services that we provide:

E-Mail List

Our e-mail list exists to facilitate an electronic connection between the UMass Extension Landscape, Nursery & Urban Forestry Program and the Green Industry.  A message to the list is one of our fastest and most dynamic means of relaying information.

Plant Problem Diagnostics

The UMass Extension Plant Diagnostic lab provides diagnoses and recommendations for the turf, floriculture, vegetable, nursery, urban forestry and landscape industries.

Soil Testing

Testing of soil is a fundamental exercise in landscape care, as soil test results serve to inform numerous key management decisions.  The UMass Soil and Plant Tissue Testing Laboratory provides a complete range of soil testing services for professionals and homeowners alike.

Additional Services

Select services offered by the UMass Extension Landscape, Nursery & Urban Forestry Program are available only by special arrangement.
