Wildlife Technical Assistance Providers List

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has seen a need to develop a list of contractors, who are involved in wildlife technical assistance statewide, especially those contractors who provide on-the-ground services. The list currently consists of individuals or businesses in South Carolina and nearby contractors in Georgia and North Carolina.

The services provided by these technical assistance providers includes activities such as:

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources in no way endorses or guarantees the services of any contractor on this list. It is strongly recommended that the landowner seeking assistance ask for references and have the contractor explain in detail what services will be included before agreeing to or signing any contract for services. It would also be advisable for the landowner to discuss their situation with several contractors before agreeing to any contract. Listings are by county of business location. Most contractors work multiple counties. Landowners should carefully review the service area information for each contractor.

The list was compiled by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources with assistance from Clemson Extension Service, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Forest Service, and S.C. Forestry Commission. These agencies assimilated the names, addresses, and phone numbers of individuals they knew were involved in providing wildlife technical assistance to the public. Additional contractors were identified by contacting individuals on the state Tree Planters List and the state Herbicide Applicators list.

Compiling the list will be an ongoing process and changes to the Wildlife Technical Assistance Providers List will be made as new contractors are identified. If you are a private consultant or business involved with wildlife habitat related technical assistance to private landowners and wish to be included on the SCDNR list, please contact Willie Simmons at 803-734-3898.
