Companies Honored at PLANET's Green Industry Conference

PLANET, the national trade association that represents more than 100,000 landscape industry professionals, honored dozens of companies at its annual awards presentation during this year's Green Industry Conference.

The Professional Landcare Network recognized the best work in commercial and residential landscape design, installation, and maintenance, as well as interior plant work, and also the best in safety and sustainability at the Green Industry Conference.

This year, the National Landscape Awards of Excellence, NLAE, were given to more than 100 projects in the following categories: 24 Grand, 53 Merit, and 25 Recognition. Four Judges Awards were announced and presented at the ceremony. Lambert Landscape Company received two Judges Awards--one in the Residential Design/Build Category and the other in the Commercial Installation category--and John Mini Distinctive Landscapes received a Judges Award in the Landscape Management category. The Bartlett Tree Experts received a special Judges Award for its Care for the Trees at The National September 11th Memorial and Museum project.

"PLANET is very proud to honor all the amazing work that our members do," said PLANET President, Jim McCutcheon, Landscape Industry Certified. "Being able to highlight this talent helps shine a light on our industry."

In addition, seven companies received the Sustainable Company Award which recognizes those businesses that strive to protect and conserve resources, reduce waste, and prevent pollution and that promote an ethic of environmental sustainability within their workplace.
