§

1040. Compensation for destruction

When in the

suppression of insect pests or plant diseases it becomes necessary for the

secretary to destroy the hosts of such pests or diseases, compensation shall be

made as follows: the secretary and owner of lands upon which the plants are

destroyed shall agree upon the price to be paid as compensation. The impact of

the pest or disease on the fair market value of the plant shall be considered.

However, compensation shall not be made for wild or uncultivated trees, plants,

or shrubbery which are ordered destroyed on account of disease or infestation.

When plants have been destroyed and compensation accepted, no other such host

plants may be maintained on the premises until all danger from the spread of

the pest or disease is past. (Added 1995, No. 68 (Adj. Sess.), § 2; amended

2003, No. 42, § 2, eff. May 27, 2003.)
