South Carolina Board of Registration for Foresters

When to Renew a License

Licenses are renewed biennially (every two years).  Renewal information is mailed to each licensee at least one month prior to the June 30 expiration date.  However, it is the licensees' responsibility to ensure registration is renewed.  The biennial renewal fee is $40.  After June 30 the renewal fee is $55.  Licensees have the ability to renew online using a credit card. 

Licenses expire biennially on June 30 (odd years).  However, licensees may renew until September 30.  A $15 late charge will be added for all renewals from July 1 through September 30.  After September 30, the registration lapses and the licensee must apply for reinstatement.  

How to Apply for Reinstatement

Licensees who allow their registrations to lapse must apply for reinstatement.  Reinstatement applications must be reviewed and approved by the full Board.  To apply for reinstatement, registrants must submit the following:

  • Updated Application for Registration as a Professional Forester
  • Updated Employment Verification form
  • Notarized statement indicating if the licensee has, or has not (whichever is applicable) practiced forestry in South Carolina since the license lapsed
  • Proof of required CFE hours with attached attendance documents.
    (a) Registration lapse of 1-3 years: Complete the CFE requirements for a minimum of one year prior to application for registration.
    (b) Registration lapse of 4-10 years: Complete the current CFE requirements for a minimum of two years credits during the 18 months preceding the application for reinstatement.
    (c) Registration lapse of 11 or more years: Completion of the examination required for initial licensing.
  • Past renewal fee(s), late fee(s) and $100 reinstatement fee
