SECTION B ETA 790A/H-2A Clearance Order Addendum C Section B.2 Required Work Experience Addl Disclosure
EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT: Applicants are required to have a minimum one month of verifiable experience working in Christmas tree shearing/pruning. Pruning & shearing Christmas trees is critical work because if done incorrectly it can take years for the tree to grow out of the damage causing the grower significant economic damage. Some 7-8 foot trees & 6-7 trees must be downsized this season due to bad market conditions related to the a glut of larger sized trees in the market. Therefore, many larger trees will have to be pruned/sheared down one to two sizes which will require at least one months experience in shearing trees in order to avoid damaging the trees. Applicants are required to have a minimum one month verifiable experience working in field grown tree nursery or field and container grown nursery stock-grading, sizing, and pruning mostly trees with some limited bushes.
