Tree Trimming in Daniel Island
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 Daniel Island
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:
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.
Stump Removal in Daniel Island
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 Daniel Island
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.

SC Adopt-a-Stream Program celebrates successes on its 5th anniversary, seeks more volunteers to protect local waterways

Photos provided - South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream volunteers discuss water quality at a free training workshop. Volunteers must first become certified, during which they learn how to measure water quality and what behaviors and land-use changes can impact waterway health.
The South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream, a volunteer program for monitoring water quality, is celebrating five years of protecting waterways across the state and is actively seeking more local volunteers who understand the importance of healthy watersheds.
First launched in South Carolina in 2017, the South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream program (SC AAS) is managed by a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Clemson University Center for Watershed Excellence (CU CWE).
To date, SC AAS volunteers have conducted more than 3,000 sampling events at streams around the state. That water sample data provides key information about stream conditions and helps guide volunteers, educators, conservation groups, and local governments on how they can partner together to protect and restore polluted waterways. The data volunteers collect are available to the public without any required log in through the SC AAS database.
“Our state’s SC Adopt-a-Stream volunteers are at the heart of this program and are what make it such a success,” said Sierra Hylton, DHEC’s SC Adopt-a-Stream Program Coordinator. “Through free trainings and workshops, our volunteers learn how to collect samples and understand water quality data. Our volunteer data provides impressive quantitative results that help create partnerships at the local level for protecting and restoring waterways. In turn, our volunteers become conservation advocates within their communities.”
Data collected by SC AAS volunteers have helped identify broken sewer pipes, broken water lines, and sedimentation issues. Detecting these problems early on helps local governments and other entities save time, resources and money to fix the issues at their source before their impacts become widespread or costly.
“Community science is changing the way we manage our natural resources worldwide and how we engage our public in their smart management,” said Katie Callahan, director of Clemson University’s Center for Watershed Excellence. "More eyes and ears outside can share powerful observations that through programs like SC Adopt-a-Stream, activate local authorities when the threat of pollution is observed. Free trainings and a less complicated database of results and photos democratizes environmental health data and encourages more broad participation in the decisions that affect our communities. We at the Center are grateful to be a player in such a powerful program for our state and waterways,”
Some recent SC AAS successes include:
SC AAS volunteers have been recognized by Gov. Henry McMaster, mayors, county councils, public water utilities, conservation groups, local businesses, and many others for their efforts to study, advocate for, and protect South Carolina’s irreplaceable waterways.
Both DHEC and the CU CWE encourage anyone with an interest in SC AAS to learn more. There are various ways to volunteer and support this water monitoring program in your community.
Information about how to become a volunteer, where and when training workshops take place, and additional information is available at scadoptastream.org or by contacting Sierra Hylton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Emily Anderson at email@example.com.
Philip Simmons, BE premiere boys’ volleyball programs

If practice makes perfect, then the Bishop England High School boys’ volleyball team should be in good shape this fall after going 3-0 in scrimmages in preparation for the regular season.
Bishop England and Philip Simmons, along with about 40 schools in the Palmetto State, will field boys’ teams this fall as the High School League finally sanctioned the sport in time for the 2022-23 academic year.
“It’s so new, we’re still learning so much,” said Bishop England coach Alec Swanson, whose team was scheduled to open the regular season Aug. 31 against Wando. “You can look at wins and losses to measure success, but I’m looking for understanding. The players need to understand the game. Some of the players’ only experience with volleyball was phys ed. Now, they have to understand how the game is played. And, they have to learn every single rule.
“Some of our players are new to the sport, so they still have so much to learn,” Swanson said. “We just need to have our players improve every time out, and step up when it comes time to play a game.”
Swanson, obviously, did not play volleyball at Bishop England. But that didn’t stop him from enjoying the sport. He could be found playing beach volleyball at The Windjammer and traveled around the South playing club volleyball.
Boys’ volleyball will have a different vibe than their girl counterparts with the net almost a foot higher. Players are taller, which means more traffic around the net and more power on serves and spikes.
Excitement was high at Bishop England as 30 boys tried out for the team.
“We only have a varsity team, so we did have to cut some players,” Swanson said. “Everyone has a reason to play. Some of our players wanted to try out because their sisters play volleyball.”
At Philip Simmons, coach Amanda Newell has been stressing fundamentals and team chemistry.
Newell played volleyball at Buford High School and followed that up with an impressive career at Wofford. Her coaching experience includes a stint at The Citadel.
“It’s crazy to see how quickly the team has improved,” said Newell, whose team also opened the season Aug. 31 against Cane Bay. “You can put them on the court, and they will show improvement in 10 minutes. We are coming together as a team. We’re improving our skills and developing as a team.”
Newell wants to develop a team that wins. But winning isn’t the only objective on the agenda.
“I want the players to have fun, enjoy the sport and spread the word at school,” Newell said.
According to the Palmetto Volleyball Association, boys’ volleyball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S. South Carolina boys’ volleyball began in 2019 with 14 teams. However, COVID-19 canceled the 2020 club season although 39 schools offered boys’ volleyball as a club sport. That number dropped to 21 teams because of the pandemic, but has rebounded to about 40 teams.
While the S.C. High School League sanctioned the sport, there will be no playoffs this fall which means there will be no state champion crowned.

Oak Hills Country Club, in San Antonio, Texas, has been chosen as the host site for the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship and 2028 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship. The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball will be contested from May 11-15, 2024, and the U.S. Senior Amateur will take place from Aug. 26-31, 2028.
“The USGA is thrilled to make our return to Oak Hills Country Club in both 2024 and 2028,” said Mark Hill, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “We know the course will be a true test for the best amateur golfers in the world. This will absolutely be showcased during the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and the U.S. Senior Amateur.”
Oak Hills Country Club is one of the oldest private member-owned country clubs in the country. Originally founded in 1922 as the Alamo Country Club, Oak Hills was designed by premier architect A.W. Tillinghast, whose vision of beauty and challenging play is enjoyed by golfers of all abilities. Alamo Country Club ceased operations during World War II and the course reopened as Oak Hills Country Club in 1946.
“The Oak Hills membership and the larger community of San Antonio are looking forward to welcoming both the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and U.S. Senior Amateur to our club,” said Cary Collins, director of golf at Oak Hills Country Club. “We look forward to hosting tremendous amateur golfers and having the opportunity to share our golf course on a national stage. It’s an incredible opportunity for all of us at the club and we are looking forward to working with the USGA closely over the next several years.”
Oak Hills previously hosted the 2001 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, when Henry Liaw defeated Richard Scott, 2 and 1, in the final match. The club has also hosted 24 Texas Open Championships won by several legends of the game, including Arnold Palmer, Hale Irwin and Lee Trevino. The PGA Tour Champions’ AT&T Championship was also hosted at the club from 2002-2010, with Craig Stadler, Jay Haas, Fred Funk and John Cook among those to hoist the trophy. Oak Hills also hosted the 1987 debut of the Tour Championship, which was then known as the Nabisco Championship and was won by Tom Watson.
The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball is open to female amateur golfers of all ages. Each member of the side must have a USGA Handicap Index® of 14.4 or lower. The 2023 championship will be held at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash., from May 13-17. Additional future sites include Daniel Island Club in Charleston, S.C., from May 2-6, 2026, and Bandon Dunes (Ore.) Golf Resort in 2037.
In April, Georgia residents Thienna Huynh and Sara Im outlasted Kaitlyn Schroeder and Bailey Shoemaker, 1 up, at Grand Reserve Golf Club in Puerto Rico to win the 7th U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. This installment of the championship made history as the first USGA championship to be contested outside the mainland in a U.S. territory.
The U.S. Senior Amateur is open to any golfer who is 55 years of age or older and whose Handicap Index does not exceed 7.4. The 2022 championship is currently taking place at The Kittansett Club in Marion, Mass., through Sept. 1, while Martis Camp Club in Truckee, Calif. will host the 2023 edition from Aug. 26-31. The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn., will host the 2024 championship from Aug. 24-29 and Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, N.C., will host in 2025.

As enthusiastic spectators clad in purple and black fill the stands at Philip Simmons High School, a catchy chant echoes across the field: “Horses, let’s start this show, yell it out, come on, here we go, P-S-H!”
The sideline cheerleaders perform their role with perfect precision. Their job is to build excitement, to get the crowd involved in the game, and to support the team, all while representing their school and community. Cheerleaders are largely responsible for the anticipation of
“Friday Night Lights” every fall, bringing a sense of fun and nostalgia to high school sports.
A spirited, successful cheerleading squad starts at the top of the pyramid with dedicated leadership. Enter Chelsea Sturgis, the newly hired head cheerleading coach at Philip Simmons High School.
Sturgis is a native Charlestonian who grew up participating in both all-star, competitive, and sideline cheerleading for eight years. She graduated from Wando High School in Mount Pleasant and was awarded a cheerleading scholarship at Newberry College. Eventually,
Sturgis earned her bachelor’s degree from the College of Charleston and teaches first grade at Bowen’s Corner Elementary School.
The cheerleading team covers a lot of ground, from leading pep rallies to instructing youth summer camps. They are a relatively small but mighty group that includes 16 students on the varsity squad and 10 on junior varsity. The varsity team cheers at varsity level home games and travels to away games. Junior varsity members cheer only at home games.
Sturgis has big dreams for her team. “As head cheerleading coach at PSH,” she said, “my goal is to make our cheerleading program stronger and continue to play a role in the local community and schools. My vision for the future is to create a competitive program at Philip Simmons as it continues to grow in population.”
Sturgis plans to integrate the team into more community events by working closely with local feeder schools and the sports teams at the middle school level. Showing that the cheerleaders can be positive role models for younger girls is important to many of the members of the squad.
Varsity cheerleading captain Cherri Morgan added, “Under Coach Sturgis’ leadership, I know that the team will grow a lot in our stunts and stunt sequences. I’m sure that we will continue to be active and involved in our community by continuing to host our kid’s cheer camp and helping out at other events where we are needed.”
When asked about Sturgis’ leadership approach, Morgan commented, “I would say Coach Sturgis’ style of coaching is more of a hands-on style. She allows us to attempt things on our own and will jump in to help as soon as we need her to.”
Catch the Philip Simmons High School cheerleaders Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m. as the Iron Horses’ varsity football team takes on Georgetown High School at home.
