An effort has been made to italicize technical words or phrases and clearly define them in the glossary.

Depending on the landowner's objectives, timber management practices, such as harvesting, site preparation, and prescribed burning can be used to enhance wildlife habitat. However, due to the diversity of habitats and wildlife species in the state, it is impractical to provide specific recommendations for wildlife management in this document. If wildlife is a priority on the site to be managed, contact the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for detailed recommendations prior to initiating timber management activities. Management advice can also be obtained through certified consulting wildlife biologists or licensed foresters.

Listed below are examples of general practices which will enhance many wildlife species.
