Plants and plant products:—Trees, shrubs, vines, forage and cereal plants, and all other plants; cuttings, grafts, scions, buds, and all other parts of plants; and fruit, vegetables, roots, bulbs, seeds, wood, lumber, and all other plant products. Nursery stock:-All field-grown trees, shrubs, vines, cuttings, grafts, stions, buds, fruit-pits, and other seeds of fruit and ornamental trees and shrubs, and other plants and plant products grown or kept for propagation, excepting field, vegetable and flower seeds, bedding plants, and other herbaceous plants, bulbs, and roots. Nursery:-Any grounds or premises on or in which nursery stock is propagated and grown for sale, or any grounds or premises on or in which nursery stock is being fumigated, treated, packed or stored.

Dealer:-Any person not a grower of nursery stock in this State, who buys nursery stock for the purpose of reselling and reshipping independent of any control of the nurseryman.

This term shall also apply to any person engaged with a nurseryman, dealer or agent in handling nursery stock on a co-operative basis. Places:—Wessels, cars and other vehicles, buildings, docks, nurseries, orchards and other premises, where plants and plant products are grown, kept, or handled. Persons:—Individuals, associations, partnerships and corporations. Words used in the Act shall be construed to import either the plural or the singular, as the case demands. § 3. It shall be the duty of the Department of Agriculture to inspect once each year all nurseries and nursery stock in the State of Illinois as to whether they are infested or infected by insect pests and diseaSeS. § 4. The Department of Agriculture shall have authority to inspect any orchard, fruit- or garden-plantation, field, park, cemetery, private premises, or public place, and any place which might become infested or infected with insect pests or diseases. It shall also have authority to inspect or to reinspect at any time or place any nursery stock shipped in or into the State, and to treat it as hereinafter provided. For the purposes of inspection, the officers and employees of the Department of Agriculture shall have free access within reasonable hours to any field, orchard, garden, packing ground, building, cellar, freight or express office, warehouse, car, vessel, or other place where it may be necessary or desirable for them to enter in carrying out the provisions of this Act. It shall be unlawful to deny such access to the officers and employees of the Department of Agriculture, or to hinder, thwart, or defeat such inspection by misrepresenting or concealing facts or conditions, or otherWISG. § 5. Persons desiring to sell or ship nursery stock in this State shall make application in writing before July 1 of each year to the Department of Agriculture for the inspection of their stock, and any nurseryman failing to comply with this section shall be liable to extra charges to cover the expenses of a special trip by the officers or employees of the Department of Agriculture. Every person receiving directly or indirectly any nursery stock from a foreign country shall notify the Department of Agriculture of the arrival of such shipment, of the contents thereof, and of the name of the consignor, and shall hold such shipment unopened until duly inspected or released by such department.

§ 6. It shall be the duty of the Department of Agriculture to cause to be inspected at least once each year between July 1 and September 15, all nurseries in the State of Illinois as to whether they are infested by insect pests or infested [infected] by diseases. If upon the inspection of any nursery as above provided it shall appear that said nursery and its premises are apparently free from insect pests and diseases, it shall be the duty of the Department of Agriculture, upon payment of the expenses of inspection, to give or to send to the owner of said nursery or the person in charge of the same, not later than October 1, a certificate executed by the Department of Agriculture setting forth the fact of such inspection, and said certificate shall be valid not to exceed one year from the date thereof. The provisions of this section shall not apply to florist's greenhouse plants nor to flowers or cuttings commonly known as greenhouse stock. It shall be unlawful for any person to sell or to offer for sale or to remove or ship from a nursery or other premises any nursery stock until such stock has been officially inspected and a certificate or permit covering it has been granted by the Department of Agriculture; except that scions of fruit trees may be shipped from one place to another within this State without inspection, under a special permit of the Department of Agriculture, in which case they must be held unused by the person receiving them until they have been duly inspected and pronounced free from insect pests and diseases.

§ 7. If the Department of Agriculture shall find that part of a nursery is infested or infected with insect pests or plant diseases, and that the remainder of it is not so infested or infected, or if it shall have reason to believe that a nursery is liable, by reason of its proximity to infested or infected premises, to become so infested or infected before the next annual inspection, it may prescribe in writing such measures or precaution, or may make in writing such conditions as to the use of its certificate, as may in its judgment be necessary, and it may withhold a certificate until such conditions have been accepted in writing by the Owner of said nursery; and the use of such certificate without taking such measures of precaution or observing such conditions shall subject the owner of said nursery to the penalties prescribed for a violation of this Act.

$ 8. Every dealer within the meaning of this Act, located either within or without the State, engaged in selling nursery stock in this State shall secure a dealer’s certificate, first furnishing an affidavit that he will buy and sell only stock which has been duly inspected and certified by the Department of Agriculture; or inspector approved by the Federal Horticultural Board and that he will maintain with the Department of Agriculture a list of all sources from which he secures his stock.

§ 9. Nurserymen, dealers or other persons residing or doing busimess outside the State desiring to solicit orders for nursery stock in this State, shall, upon filing a certified copy of their original state certificate with the Department of Agriculture, if said certificate is approved by the department, receive a certificate permitting such persons to solicit orders for nursery stock in this State.
