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:
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Sure, you could take the time to do your research on how to remove a stump. You could go to Home Depot, rent a high-powered stump grinder, and risk your health trying to operate it without training. You could spend every winking moment of your free time trying to grind the stump down so you can remove it from your yard. But why go through all that trouble when a trustworthy, experienced stump removal company like Planet Green Tree Service is only a phone call away?
Our team of stump removal professionals uses state-of-the-art tools designed to keep your property damage-free during the removal process. We will turn your yard into a beautiful blank slate, so you can focus on enjoying your stump-free while we haul away all the debris.

Editorial: Bike-ped access near Charleston’s North Bridge won’t be cheap. It will be worth it.
THE EDITORIAL STAFF
We are pleased to see local leaders more committed than ever to establishing a safe way to walk and bike across the Ashley River in the vicinity of the North Bridge. It’s long overdue, as lives have been lost by people trying to navigate the dangerous span that has six lanes for cars and trucks but no sidewalk space. But as officials continue to study the best solution, the complexity and cost of the challenge is becoming more clear: We need more than a safe way across the Ashley River for cyclists and pedestrians. We also need ...
We are pleased to see local leaders more committed than ever to establishing a safe way to walk and bike across the Ashley River in the vicinity of the North Bridge. It’s long overdue, as lives have been lost by people trying to navigate the dangerous span that has six lanes for cars and trucks but no sidewalk space.
But as officials continue to study the best solution, the complexity and cost of the challenge is becoming more clear: We need more than a safe way across the Ashley River for cyclists and pedestrians. We also need a safe crossing of Interstate 26, which hugs the North Charleston shoreline at the eastern terminus of the bridge.
A bike-ped bridge likely would pass under I-26 well south of its Cosgrove Avenue intersection along Baker Hospital Boulevard, though it also could be built north of the bridge and cross I-26 on Azalea Drive. The idea of widening the offramps from I-26 onto Cosgrove — and adding stoplights there that would allow a safe crossing for those on foot or on bike — would need to take traffic volume and safety into account but should not be ruled out at this point.
For the past year, Charleston County has worked on a conceptual design for a 14-foot-wide pedestrian bridge near the North Bridge — formally the World War II Memorial Bridge on S.C. Highway 7. The project team working on the “Better North Bridge” study intends to provide a website presenting at least one concept and cost estimate later this year, and then the public can provide feedback. We urge the county to ensure that work remains on track.
Because even if elected leaders and the public quickly agree on the best plan, the next, even more challenging step will be finding the money to build it. Its ultimate cost could be northward of $30 million, or 50% more than the standalone bike-ped bridge being designed across the Ashley River just south of the U.S. Highway 17 drawbridges.
Some people will blanch at such a large sum to provide safe accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians, but it’s important to realize that our local bike-ped investments remain a tiny fraction of our overall spending on roads and bridges.
There’s clearly a chicken-and-egg issue, too. Few people consider walking or biking in some places because it’s unsafe to do so. If better sidewalks, bridges and other spaces are provided, that will change, especially because many of us realize the benefits to our health, our environment and our quality of life. It’s also a chance to take some cars off our roads.

It’s important to note other options have been ruled out: The S.C. Department of Transportation confirmed last year it has no plans to replace the North Bridge anytime soon, and it’s unlikely that the bridge’s structure could handle a bike-ped path attached to one edge.
A safe crossing here also is key to giving West Ashley residents bike-ped access to the new Lowcountry Rapid Transit project, a fast bus link being built between Ladson and downtown Charleston.
While the county is taking the lead on the study, the cities of Charleston and North Charleston have been supportive, too. “Everybody is coming to the table, which I think is the most important part of this,” said Katie Zimmerman of the cycling-advocacy group Charleston Moves.
Local leaders likely will seek federal help to pay for the bulk of the project, as they did successfully with the Ashley River bike-ped bridge in the works near downtown Charleston.
Specifically, the region could apply for a U.S. Department of Transportation RAISE grant (Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity, formerly known as a BUILD or TIGER grant).
Those grants are highly competitive; only about 680 projects have been funded out of almost 10,000 applications. They are awarded based on safety, environmental sustainability, quality of life, economic competitiveness, partnerships and other criteria, as well as projects’ ability to improve racial equity, reduce climate change impacts and create good-paying jobs.
The North Bridge project could compete well on those terms. And while we won’t be in a position to meet this year’s July 12 grant deadline, local leaders should ensure they’re fully prepared to apply next year.

Catches of large dolphin earned teams competing in the 2021 South Carolina Mahi Series some big paydays for the event that ended June 5.
Participants in the event that began May 10 were allowed to choose two fish days and weigh two dolphin (also known as mahi mahi) each day with their two heaviest fish counting toward the top prize.
She Agreed, captained by Mike Szucs out of Beaufort, won the tournament with a two-fish aggregate of 84.1 pounds, including the tournament’s heaviest dolphin, a 61.7-pound catch. She Agreed earned $18,000 plus another $9,700 for winning the Mahi Big Fish TWT (tournament within a tournament).
Bush Hook, captained by Jeffrey Sawyer of Summerville, took second place with 73.2 pounds, a 48.5 fish and a 24.7-pound catch. Bush Hook earned $8,500 from the main tournament and another $5,700 for finishing second in the Mahi High Roller TWT.
Third place went to Yates Sea, captained by David Yates of Mount Pleasant, with a two-fish aggregate of 72.2 pounds. Yates Sea won $4,000 from the main tournament plus $9,500 from the High Roller TWT.
Rounding out the top 10 finishers were: Fish Tanked, Johnston McCurry, Johns Island, 72.2; The Drum, Burton Harbin, Traveler’s Rest, 63.9; Reel Pipes, Timothy Redd, Aiken, 62.8; Sandman, Mike Holmes, Walterboro, 62.6; No Limit, Marvin Benford, Summerville, 59.1; Water We Doin’, Shevlin Howe, Isle of Palms, 57.9; and Sea Spur, Elliott Koonce, Georgetown, 55.5.
Sandman, which finished seventh overall, actually enjoyed the tournament’s biggest payday. Sandman took the winner-take-all S.C. Big Mahi TWT with a 41.5-pound catch that was worth $24,000. Sandman also won $850 for finishing seventh and $3,800 for finishing third in the Mahi High Roller TWT, a total of $28,650.
The tournament’s three heaviest fish — She Agreed’s 61.7-pound catch, Yates Sea’s 53.2-pound fish and Bush Hook’s 48.5-pound catch — were all caught on May 17. Sandman’s 41.5-pound catch, the fourth heaviest, was caught June 2.
Stocks and Bonds, captained by Michael Schiess of Pawleys Island, won the Tuna TWT with a 31.9-pound yellowfin worth $8,200.
Neal Koonce, fishing aboard Sea Spur, was the top youth angler with a 30.8-pound dolphin. Lauren Sawyer, aboard Bush Hooked, was the top lady angler with the team’s 48.5-pound dolphin.
“I’m extremely happy with the way this tournament is going,” said tournament director and founder Capt. Marc Pincus of Hilton Head. “We had 105 boats last year, which I thought was miraculous. I was trying to get 50 and ended up with 105. To get 128 boats this year, I was really excited.
“Even though you have to go far out, the mahi fishery is something a lot of people can go out and enjoy. It’s a fun fishery that gets a lot of people involved.”
Pincus said he chose the April-June timeframe for the event because that’s when it seems the dolphin fishery is at its peak. Pincus also runs the S.C. Wahoo Series (scwahooseries.com), which ended April 24, and he said it seems every year that a big dolphin shows up the final week of that event. He said a 50-pounder caught the final week of the S.C. Wahoo Series won the dolphin TWT.
“May is our red-hot time for dolphin. It’s not unusual to go out and catch 10, 15 fish. And that’s what we want,” Pincus said. “If people go out and catch fish then they have a good time. If they go out and get skunked, it’s hard to get those folks back.
“I thought this year was a super bite. Everybody I talked to was catching fish and that’s what you want.”
The S.C. Mahi Series is the middle event of the three-tournament HUK South Carolina Saltwater Series. Pincus said this year 52 boats are participating in the overall series, a good number, he said, when he was hoping for at least 15 to 20. The top points earner will win $2,500 cash and a $2,500 HUK gift certificate. Second place will win a $2,500 HUK gift certificate.
The final event is the S.C. Fall Classic (scfallclassic) king mackerel tournament, which runs Sept. 21-Nov. 7. Participants in the S.C. Fall Classic can choose two fish days, weigh two fish each day, and have their three heaviest count toward the aggregate total. The top prize is $20,000.
“We had 100 boats last year and 80 the year before,” Pincus said. “I thought 100 was exceptional and my goal is to get back to 100 boats.
“Fishing in last year’s tournament was outstanding. The fall kingfish bite is unbelievable here, off the chain. Boats were catching 20, 30 fish a day and most were over 30 pounds. It’s an incredible fishery we have here in the fall. People will catch 15, 20 kings and they may not win the tournament but they’ll remember that day and there’s a good chance they will come back and fish again next year.”

Beach: The easiest, quickest way to fight climate change that SC probably won’t try
Teddy Gilbreth’s Thursday column on the Monaco Grand Prix, which ended with a reference to the number of cars exceeding the speed limit on Interstate 526, got me thinking about speeding. It is my observation that about 93% of the cars on S.C. highways are speeding. On interstates such as I-26 and I-526, the number is 98%. (The remaining 2% are coasting because they’re running out of gas.) In downtown Charleston, it’s generally not possible to speed because of potholes, submerged drainage grates and red-green c...

In downtown Charleston, it’s generally not possible to speed because of potholes, submerged drainage grates and red-green colorblind tourists. Despite that, some drivers still make the effort, especially on East Bay between Calhoun and the Harris Teeter — our own version of the Monaco straightaway, except with palm trees and pedestrians on the sidewalk, narrower travel lanes and two-way traffic.
It is my sense that the drivers who are the most assertive about their rights to speed have few good reasons to reach their destinations 69 seconds earlier than they would if they obeyed the speed limit. Instead, I believe this behavior has three causes:

Amid the multitude of Dutch Dialogues, listening sessions, flood abatement/detention/retention seminars, et al., there is one stunningly simple thing Americans can do to slow global warming and sea level rise: slow down. The 55-mph speed limit, enacted after the Arab oil embargo of 1973-74, reduced oil consumption by 167,000 barrels a day, saving more than 1 billion barrels of oil over the life of the embargo. This means the 55-mph speed limit prevented about 500 million metric tons of greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere and further warming the planet.
As a side benefit, the 55-mph speed limit improved gas mileage, reduced wear and tear on cars and roads, lowered annual expenses to car owners and taxpayers and substantially cut down on automobile accidents. One study concluded the lower speed limit saved more than 10,000 lives.
I served on then-Gov. Mark Sanford’s climate, energy and commerce committee in 2007. After more than a year of meetings, the committee approved 51 climate-mitigation measures the state could adopt. (Sadly, none was adopted.)
When a MeadWestvaco executive explained the climate, energy and commerce benefits of reducing the speed limit, the committee, which worked by consensus, chose not to consider it as a possible mitigation measure. I’ll never forget the executive’s response: “Well, I guess it comes down to how committed we really are to dealing with climate change.”
Perhaps now, with dry-weather flooding increasing almost daily, and with the city of Charleston and the Lowcountry facing the prospect of tens of billions of dollars in flood-related damage to private houses, stores and offices and to public infrastructure ... perhaps now we’ll give this modest proposal another look. I’m not overly optimistic, but it’s worth a try.

“It’s a very casual easy-going environment, obviously during COVID it’s a lot different than it normally is and, knock on wood, we’re slowly progressing through,” said Read.
To the company’s surprise business still poured in during the pandemic.
“We started to do a lot of to-go business which picked up pretty aggressively right out of the gate of COVID which was a big shock to all of us,” said Read.
But back to beers… “Oh boy, we have all kinds of stuff, so we’ve done since we’ve opened we’ve done probably 100 plus different beers, so there’s always something new coming out,” said Read.
Lindsey Forbes visiting from Pennsylvania said it was the taste of the beers that drew her in while visiting the Lowcountry.
“We got their beers before at North Carolina at one of their beer stores and really liked it and wanted to come down here and check out the brewery,” said Forbes.
It’s also the locals who keep the place busy. People like Roscoe Bolton who is a regular from Charleston and was enjoying a Sorbet sour when we caught up with him.
“We’ve been coming here for a long time. We’ve got kids, so the field outside is great for letting them run around in and just be able to relax, enjoy a couple of beers, and the time outside,” said Roscoe
“Our regulars are amazing, they’re what keep us going and the local Charleston crew that comes and hangouts and drinks and buys our beer we wouldn’t be without them either,” Read said.
