Tree Trimming in Charleston

Have you noticed your favorite tree growing in a strange shape? Are your trees or shrubs so overgrown that it's making your property and home look unkempt? Are the trees near your home weighed down by dangerous dead branches? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it might be time to speak with a Planet Green Tree Service professional to find a solution.

Like anything that lives, trees respond to their environment. When trees are not properly maintained, they can cause a whole host of problems for the homeowner. Overgrowth doesn't just look bad - it can be a potential safety hazard and liability for your home. To prevent this from happening, it's crucial that your trees are trimmed and pruned regularly. Trimming your trees and shrubs gives your home a tidy, appealing look and facilitates healthy plant and tree growth.

Because every tree and shrub is different, you must approach tree trimming with a plan. Before you start hacking at your trees with a machete, be sure to contact Planet Green Tree Service. Our team of expert arborists will come to your home and determine the best path to take for your tree trimming needs. We always take into account variables like the strengths, weaknesses, and species of your trees.

Benefits of Tree Trimming in Charleston

For some folks, tree trimming seems like a minor detail in the grand scheme of homeownership. It can be a tedious job, but keeping your trees trimmed and well-maintained is more important than you might think. Below are just a few of the many benefits of keeping your trees and shrubs trimmed:

Tree Trimming in Charleston

Tree Health

Part of the Planet Green pruning and trimming process includes the removal of damaged, broken, dead, and diseased branches. When ignored, these dead or dying branches can cause harmful fungi to wreak havoc on the trees around your home or business. Removing these weakened branches helps prevent fungi and keeps your trees healthy. In addition, tree trimming also lets more sunlight and air circulation reach your trees, boosting overall health.

Safety

Safety

As longtime residents of South Carolina, we know how dangerous hurricanes and heavy storms can be. Strong winds from these natural occurrences can cause branches to fall or even be carried away with significant force. This is concerning for many homeowners, especially those who have trees lining their driveways, recreational areas, and walking paths. When you trust Planet Green with your trimming needs, you are actually doing your part to "storm proof" your home from hazardous tree-related accidents. If you have low-hanging branches close to your roof or business, pruning these trees can provide more safety and overhead clearance. That way, don't have an anxiety attack every time a storm rolls through your neighborhood.

Aesthetics

Aesthetics

Nobody likes the look of an overgrown, disheveled tree. Tree trimming improves the general appearance of your tree and makes your whole yard and home look better. Tree trimming also prevents your trees from growing weak branches and crotches and helps stop branches from intertwining with one another.

Developmental Tree Trimming

Developmental Tree Trimming

Pruning younger trees is key to protecting them as they age. This vital tree service in Charleston keeps young trees aesthetically appealing and promotes proper structural integrity and optimal branch structure. In addition, as your home's landscape matures, taking the time to trim young trees reduces the chance of expensive problems like tree failure.

Types of Tree Trimming

Not all tree trimming services from Planet Green Tree Service are the same. Our experts specialize in a number of different tree trimming services to ensure you are getting the right kind of trim for the appropriate situation. Because even the smallest mistake can permanently affect your tree's health, we approach every tree trimming job with surgeon-like precision. That way, you know your trees are in capable, responsible hands.

Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction

When your trees age without the proper kind of care, they can develop too many branches on their interior. Trees like this give great shade, but too much is not a good sign. That's where crown reduction trimming comes in. By reducing the density of your tree's crown, our tree care experts improve its growth rate and health. Crown density reduction also promotes a longer lifespan and a more beautiful appearance.

Deadwooding

Deadwooding

As the name implies, deadwooding involves the trimming of dead wood from your trees. Often required in urban and suburban areas, deadwooding a tree makes it look more attractive and livelier, while maintaining the health of your tree's trunk by removing rotted branches. This process also makes it safer for kids and other people who walk underneath or near your tree that may be harmed by rotting branches that fall. Other tree trimming services that Planet Green offers include: hazardous tree assessments, shrub trimming, pruning, cabling, bracing, and corrective trimming.

Stump Removal in Charleston

For most property owners, removing a tree can seem like a major project. While that notion certainly isn't wrong, tree removal is more straightforward and often easier than trying to remove an unsightly stump from your yard. Have you ever wondered why you see so many yards with stumps dotted around the land? It's because they're very difficult to remove. That is why Planet Green Tree Service has been offering stump removal services in South Carolina for more than 33 years. Our skilled stump removal experts bring a wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge tools to every stump removal project they tackle.

The fact of the matter is this: trying to remove a stump on your own is an incredible undertaking. Going the "DIY" route can take weeks to complete, even if you spend an hour or two every day. There's also the issue of operating heavy machinery (which costs time and money to rent) and even light fires to expedite the process, which is dangerous. For these reasons alone, we always recommend that you bring in a professional to remove your tree stump safely and effectively.

Benefits of Stump Removal in Charleston

Better Looking Yard

Better Looking Yard

If you are a homeowner that loves sculpted hedges, beautiful landscaping, and a tidy law, removing old tree stumps will feel like a huge weight off of your chest. Stump removal not only gives your home more curb appeal, it can actually raise the value of your home. This is particularly pertinent if you are thinking about listing your home for sale in the near future.

More Space

More Space

If your yard is small, even one stump can reduce the amount of space you have in your yard. If you spend a lot of time playing sports or just enjoying your yard space, stump removal is a huge help. After all, nobody wants to toss a football around if there are a bunch of old stumps that you must avoid. Stumps also take up considerable space below ground, with their complicated root systems. Stump removal will give you and your family more room to plant flowers, grow vegetables, install a water feature, and much more.

Eliminate Unwanted Growth

Eliminate Unwanted Growth

When you leave a tree stump in your yard, you could be setting yourself up for unwanted tree growth. This kind of new growth often results in clusters of small trees popping up around the base of the stump. This problem isn't just unsightly; it can be harmful to any plants near the stump because the new trees will suck up all the water and nutrients out of your soil.

Pest Prevention

Pest Prevention

Tree stumps are notorious for harboring all sorts of pests that can damage your hard and cause expensive problems in your home. We're talking wood borers, ants, termites, and beetles. If you want to do away with these pests and protect your home, the best course of action is to contact Planet Green Tree Service for a quote on our professional tree removal services.

CHARLESTON S.C. (WCIV) — Wonderful things can happen when a community comes together.

Lowcountry non-profit, Metanoia SC, is listening to the people who live in North Charleston's Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood.

Over the past 20 years, Metanoia has been implementing programs to meet residents' needs to generate positive changes.

Shawn Saulsberry is the Board Chair of Metanoia.

"It's a huge responsibility because Metanoia is literally serving the area that I grew up in," Saulsberry said.

Saulsberry remembers growing up in what's known as "Charleston Heights," or the "Heights" in North Charleston.

The community played an important part in his childhood.

"I didn't have the organization that we have today, but somehow I ran across those metanoia-type people who saw me, and they invested in me."

His grandfather taught him the importance of entrepreneurship.

"My grandfather taught us to work hard at an early age. He would let us rent the lawnmower from him, and we would go and cut grass in the community, and we would get to keep the profits," Saulsberry said.

Now, as a Senior Manager at the accounting firm Ernst & Young, Saulsberry uses his background of a strong work ethic to encourage the youth in the neighborhood.

Metanoia serves as a youth leadership pipeline.

"I'm not the smartest or the brightest, but I do know how to work hard, and I also know how to have endurance and not stop and just encourage them. If you do those things eventually, you're gonna find what you love. You're gonna find what you want to do in life, and it's gonna work well for you," said Saulsberry.

Metanoia was launched in 2002 by a coalition of churches across South Carolina.

By definition, Metanoia certainly works well with the community it serves.

"It means to make a positive transformation, kind of take upon a positive change of direction," explained Metanoia CEO Reverend Bill Stanfield.

Rev. Stanfield and his wife Evelyn live in the Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood with their two teenage sons.

Before Metanoia's founding, the couple spent one year getting to know their neighbors and listening to their concerns.

"We really do believe people closest to communities know the solutions to their own problems," said Stanfield.

Stanfield saw this as an opportunity to build on the positive community members saw in their neighborhood.

And Metanoia did just that.

In addition to building leaders, it's the non-profit's mission to also establish quality housing within Chicora-Cherokee.

"We build new homes for some home buyers. We also build new homes for affordable rental, all within the community where prices are going up, and people are finding it hard to afford a place to live," said Stanfield.

The organization also invests in neighborhood assets. They support black businesses on Reynolds Avenue and have a partnership with a local manufacturing company to create jobs in the community.

"There's a systematic way of listening to the community and understanding what the community needs and then coming alongside the needs of the community and becoming an advocate for what the community wants to do," said Saulsberry.

If you'd like to nominate an individual or organization for a prestigious 'Jefferson Award, email your nomination to ABC News 4's Tessa Spencer.

Heinz donates over $1M to Black-owned food businesses, including 3 in Charleston

Antwan Smalls, My Three Sons of Charleston co-owner and Army captain, made time for the managerial responsibilities that come with restaurant ownership during a recent 8-month overseas tour in Kuwait.

That included applying for a grant from the Black Kitchen Initiative.

Partnering with The LEE Initiative and Southern Restaurants for Racial Justice, Kraft Heinz is donating more than $1 million to Black-owned food and beverages businesses like My Three Sons through the program that “aims to celebrate and preserve the legacy of Black food by breaking down the barriers that keep Black voices and Black cooking on the margins of American culinary culture.”

My Three Sons of Charleston was one of three area businesses and 65 nationwide selected to receive grants of either $15,000 or $25,000 as part of the initiative, which debuted in 2021.

Bert and T’s Desserts and Carolina Cookery were the other two Lowcountry businesses to receive grants.

Lindsey Ofcacek and Edward Lee founded The LEE Initiative in 2017 to address issues of diversity and equity in the restaurant industry. Ofcacek said Black-owned restaurants received a disproportionate number of Paycheck Protection Program loans at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the repercussions are still being felt today.

“We spent a lot of time seeing what was happening in our industry and seeing what people were going through,” Ofcacek said. “Every program that we do is about diversifying leadership and ownership.”

Smalls, his mother Lorraine and the late Alice Warren first debuted My Three Sons in a North Charleston strip mall on East Montague Avenue in 2014. In January 2020, they moved into a stand-alone, brick-and-mortar in an old KFC at 5237 Dorchester Road. Less than two months later, they were forced to close amid the pandemic.

In the months that followed, Smalls was an active member of The Independent Restaurant Coalition, a group established during the pandemic to advocate for independent restaurants. For Smalls and the other grant recipients, the funding comes at an important time as inflation and pandemic-caused complications disproportionately impact small businesses, particularly those that are Black-owned.

“For them to step up and step into the gap where the government failed has been nothing but outstanding,” Smalls said of the Black Kitchen Initiative.

My Three Sons is located in an area that is short on independent restaurants and grocery stores, meaning the restaurant is a pillar in the community. Smalls plans to use a portion of the funds to further serve his North Charleston neighbors by driving to them in the new My Three Sons food truck.

The truck — equipped with a 6-burner stove, two deep fryers and a flat top — will serve My Three Sons specialties like seafood rice, chicken and waffles, and shrimp and grits when it debuts in 2023.

The SC Ports Authority has voted to enter into contracts worth over $100 million to design and build a new facility at the old U.S. Navy base.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Ports Authority has voted to enter into contracts worth over $100 million to design and build a new facility at the old U.S. Navy base in North Charleston.

The authority has broken ground on the $400 million railyard near McMillian Avenue, which is funded by the state legislature. The contracts the board approved Tuesday afternoon are the next step in moving it forward and ramping up construction.

“It has roadways so that the trains don’t interfere with passenger traffic,” SC Ports Authority President and CEO Barbara Melvin said about the facility. “It has an additional rail track. It has the facility itself, along with equipment. A lot of design has already occurred, and now we’re moving into construction, which is the really exciting piece of this as we see the project coming out of the ground, so it’s a big deal.”

When built, the facility will handle cargo from Norfolk Southern and CSX, which Melvin said represents 25% of their current business.

“We expect to be able to handle a million rail lifts, and as we move into phase two, which is the second part of the design, it moves to 1.3 million rail lifts,” she said.

Board members awarded a contract worth just under $120 million to Landmark Construction to build the site itself. This contract includes building sound walls, rail foundations, 11 processing tracks and four arrival and departure tracks.

They also unanimously voted to pay over $4.3 million to design around 15 miles of rail that would head south from the facility toward Charleston before wrapping back to North Charleston.

Juan Gordon, the president of Coalition 18, which represents around 900 truckers in the Lowcountry, said the facility could do some harm to local drivers who rely on a distribution system called rapid rail. This is a system designed to move cargo from ports to areas more inland.

“I’m against it because I know people who solely depend on that program,” Gordon said. “I know people who that’s all they do is rapid rail, and they have been doing it for 10, 20 years now.”

Gordon said he does not see the facility causing truckers to turn in their keys, adding that future projects could help offset the lost business.

“We’re such a huge port community here in Charleston,” he said. “I believe we’ll find a way like we’ve done so many times.”

Melvin said they are still on track to be handling their first trains at the facility in the summer of 2025.

“This is a next great step for us, as we are a very competitive top 10 port to become an import gateway for the United States as well as having our cargo reach further into land,” Melvin said.

The Citadel Bulldogs (7-11) vs. UNC Greensboro Spartans (11-8)

The Line: UNC Greensboro Spartans -13.5 / The Citadel Bulldogs +13.5 ; Over/Under: 136 (Get latest betting odds)

The Citadel Bulldogs and the UNC Greensboro Spartans meet Thursday in college basketball action from Greensboro Coliseum. The Citadel is currently 7-11 overall. The Bulldogs lost to Western Carolina in their last game. As for UNC Greensboro, they’re 11-8 on the year after a win versus Furman. Check back all season long for free college basketball picks at Sports Chat Place.

The Citadel Bulldogs

The Citadel started out at 6-8 this year with wins over Presbyterian, Morris College, New Orleans, IUPUI, Charleston Southern and Chattanooga. The Bulldogs are 1-3 since then with losses to Furman, Wofford and ETSU.

In the Saturday matchup versus Western Carolina, the Citadel took a slim 26-25 lead into the second half. The Bulldogs posted a 39-36 run the rest of the way in a 65-61 win. Stephen Clark led the team on 28 points and eight boards.

UNC Greensboro Spartans

Over on the UNC Greensboro side, they beat JWU-Charlotte, UMBC, Montana State, Elon, Marshall, Warren Wilson and WCU in their first 14 games. The Spartans have beaten Wofford, Chattanooga, VMI and Furman in the five games since.

Matched up against Furman in the Saturday game, the Spartans scored 40 points in the first half, 37 points in the second and 11 in overtime during an 88-80 win. Keyshaun Langley led the team with 23 points and five rebounds.

ANDREW’S FREE PICK

I’m going to go with UNC Greensboro. The Spartans had a little trouble putting away a pretty good Furman team in their last outing, but to their credit UNCG got the job done. Over this current 5-1 stretch the Spartans have hit 68 or more points in all six games. As for the Citadel, they’ve been a mixed bag lately and haven’t scored well over this 1-4 stretch. I’d imagine the Bulldogs will hang around for a while in this one but I don’t think they’ll cover.
