C.R.S. Section 35-26-110
Out-of-state nurseries


The commissioner shall require out-of-state nurseries selling nursery stock in the state of Colorado to deliver to the commissioner a certified copy of the “state of origin” certificate of inspection of the nursery. This requirement may be satisfied by delivering to the commissioner a list of inspected and certified nurseries from the “state of origin” in lieu of individual certificates of inspection from each nursery. Each shipment of nursery stock entering the state of Colorado shall be accompanied by a certificate of inspection which states that the nursery stock has the appearance of freedom from insect pests and plant diseases.


An out-of-state nursery advertising and selling nursery stock in Colorado and having no duly appointed resident agent in this state upon whom process may be served as provided by law shall be deemed to have appointed the secretary of state as the agent of said nursery upon whom service of process may be had in the event of any suit against said nursery. Service on the secretary of state of any such process shall be made by delivering to and leaving with him or with his deputy, an assistant, or a clerk two copies of such process. The secretary of state shall also require a statement which contains the name and address of the nonresident’s home or home office. After receipt of such process the secretary of state shall forward to the defendant a copy of the process by registered mail, return receipt requested. The person so serving the secretary of state shall immediately send or give to the commissioner a notice of such service and a copy of the process. The secretary of state shall collect at the time of any service of process on him as resident agent a fee which shall be determined and collected pursuant to section 24-21-104 (3), C.R.S.
