NCS - Technical Service Providers of Applied Ecology

Over time, alterations of our native woodlands, wetlands, and prairies (due to disturbances such as invasive species, and habitat destruction) have eroded diverse landscapes and stolen their complex beauty. By restoring native plant communities, we can reduce maintenance costs and water pollution, increase property value, and bring back the vibrant colors, seasonal interest, and native wildlife that enrich the present and build for the future.


Natural Community Services is Nature's Choice

NCS has been serving southeast Michigan for almost a decade. Along the way, our staff and resources have grown in both quantity and quality to exceed our clients’ growing ecological needs.  Our environmental scientists and licensed professionals have the experience and qualifications to restore your property to its natural state. Our cost-effective projects for public and private clients range from backyard lots to vast acreages. We are committed to establishing ecologically sustainable landscapes that benefit the larger environment, and enrich the natural heritage of people, plants and animals.  We can assist you in procuring strategies and funding mechanisms (e.g.-grants and federal assistance for acreage landowners), to bring nature home!
