General Liability Insurance?

In order to get General liability insurance do I have to obtain my state horticulture license?

I don't know about your state, but there is nothing like that in Jersey.

Well, what I mean is what is this horticulture license? Is it a pesticide license or is a BS license that the state made up just to charge you money? I don't think you need any kind of license to get G.L. I don't remember if I even had to show them my incorporation papers or not. But like I was getting at in my first reply, I could be wrong because it could vary state to state.

Most insurance agents could care less, go tell them (Not ask) that you need a quote for General Liability Insurance for a Landscaping Business with chemical application. You will get lot's of response back, they could care less if you have a license

No, in Louisiana you do not need a hort. lic. to get GL insurance..all they need is a rundown of your services and how many employees you have and just general info about your business....that's it.

To get the license in some states you need to have proof of gl.

You need a pulse to get gl Big difference.

I believe, depending on the area...that you will pay around $600-$800 a year.
