MALCP: Massachusetts Association of Lawn Care Professionals
MALCP has been in existence since 1989. Since its founding this group has worked with many companies and individuals to ensure the professional application of lawn care products. With membership consisting of companies of all sizes, our standard of requiring pesticide licensure makes the quality and reputation of MALCP one of integrity.

With the myriad of issues facing Lawn Care and Public Health, MALCP is intent on providing scientific, sound and rational information to those concerned.
