    In Louisiana you do not need a license to cut grass, but you do need one to
    Prune shrubs - horticulture service license
    install landscapes - landscape contractors license
    spray chemicals - Commercial applicators license
    trim trees - Arborist license

    but your way too young to get any of these. Dept of Ag and Forestry requires you to obtain your 18 b-day before you can hold any licenses

    You would think in LA they would take anyone they could get to do work. Go down to that bucket/swamp and cut some grass.

    i 2nd that, dont worry, actually, i think its illegal for you to run those machines, at least its illegal for me to hire anyone under 18 to run power tools in CT. but clearly there are plenty of 14year olds out there cutting lawns and working outside. i think the IRS will pass over your case if they ever came across it. thats how most of us started.
