Planet Green specializes in the following areas:

Tree Trimming in Folly Beach

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 Folly Beach

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 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​

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

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 Folly Beach 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-icon

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

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 Folly Beach

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 Folly Beach

Better-Looking-Yard-icon

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-icon

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-icon

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.

Reduce Headaches

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.

Tropical Storm Danny makes South Carolina coastal landfall

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Tropical Storm Danny made landfall Monday evening on South Carolina's coast, threatening to dump several inches of rain on parts of the Southeast as it blusters inland. Only hours after forming offshore, Danny had top sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) as it moved ashore just north of Hilton Head on Pritchards Island, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Tropical Storm Danny made landfall Monday evening on South Carolina's coast, threatening to dump several inches of rain on parts of the Southeast as it blusters inland.

Only hours after forming offshore, Danny had top sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) as it moved ashore just north of Hilton Head on Pritchards Island, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. It added that Danny was expected to rapidly weaken over land as it heads into the Southeast on a track through parts of Georgia.

The fourth named storm of this Atlantic hurricane season formed close to South Carolina's coast during the afternoon Monday. Forecasters said it could be a rainmaker as far inland as the north Georgia Piedmont area and in northeast Alabama.

Dangerous surf conditions also were expected along parts of the Southeast seacoast, along with a threat of isolated tornadoes near the coast.

Tropical storm force winds were already recorded Monday afternoon in some spots in South Carolina just hours after Danny formed. A weather station at Folly Beach -- just outside Charleston -- recorded a wind gust of 41 mph (66 kph) during the day, the Miami-based hurricane center said.

At 8 p.m., the storm was centered about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Charleston, South Carolina, according to the Miami-based hurricane center said. The system was moving to the west-northwest at 16 mph (26 kph).

A tropical storm warning was posted earlier Monday from Edisto Beach to South Santee River in South Carolina. The hurricane center said tropical storm conditions were expected to continue in the warning area for a few more hours after landfall.

The storm could produce between 1 and 3 inches (3 to 8 centimeters) of rain with higher amounts in some coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina. Forecasters said heavier rainfall could occur in some scattered spots but the region has been dry, limiting the potential threat of any widespread flooding.

Still, forecasters warned that some local flooding remained a possibility in urban areas along the coast and up to 1 to 2 inches of rain were possible elsewhere around South Carolina and in north Georgia and northeast Alabama.

Some brushed off the storm's potential impact.

In Savannah, Georgia, all systems were go for Tuesday night's Savannah Bananas home baseball game as organizers eyed the storm. Officials for the collegiate summer league team planned to cover the field with tarp on Monday in preparation for the game.

"For us, being on the coast and being in Savannah, we get some nasty pop-up storms that can dump an inch of rain in just a few hours," Bananas President Jared Orton said Monday. "This one doesn't look like much more than just a nice, passing day of rain. I think we're good to go as long as the sun comes out tomorrow."

Online Grocer Misfits Market Coming to a Location Near You With a Chance to Win Free Groceries

We love H-E-B, Publix, and Piggly Wiggly, but there is always room for another grocery store, especially one on a worthy mission.

Misfits Market was founded with the idea of cutting food waste. It's a noble goal because, according to the USDA, somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the United States' food supply is wasted. It's a shocking number, made even more so when you think about the millions of children going hungry in the U.S. While some of that food waste comes from home, restaurants, and grocery stores, reportedly almost a third of what's grown in the U.S. never even gets harvested, because it doesn't look pretty enough for the grocery store. That's where Misfits Market comes in. Since it was started in 2019, it has saved more than 170 million pounds of food that may otherwise have gone to waste.

Misfits Market normally operates online, selling their adorably rumpled produce and products in 40 states so far. However, they are taking their show on the road from July 23 to September 4. Misfits Market will be traveling in an eco-friendly pop-up truck to 18 locations throughout the South, including stops in Charleston, Virginia Beach, the Outer Banks, New Orleans, Mobile, Dallas, and Jacksonville.

Not only do folks visiting the truck get the chance to learn about this cool new grocery store, but there are also snacks. If the promise of free treats like Stroopwafel cookies and ice pops isn't enough to lure you in, there's also the chance to win free groceries for a year and grocery discounts, and to donate to a good cause, specifically Feeding America. The fundraising efforts will kick off when Misfits donates $25,000 to Feeding America. The tour schedule is below, but if you can't make it, you can check out Misfits Market online and donate to Feeding America, too.

After a tough 2020, SC Aquarium gives Queen the sea turtle an emotional royal sendoff

When Queen saw the ocean for the first time in more than a year, she stopped to let a wave wash over her. Last summer, a group of beach-goers found her majesty stranded and covered in pluff mud on Kiawah Island. The female loggerhead sea turtle had cataracts on her eyes and coral growing on her shell. She also had debilitated turtle syndrome, which meant she was lethargic and not eating — a dangerous combination. And so, on June 13, 2020, she was admitted to the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital for care. ...

When Queen saw the ocean for the first time in more than a year, she stopped to let a wave wash over her.

Last summer, a group of beach-goers found her majesty stranded and covered in pluff mud on Kiawah Island. The female loggerhead sea turtle had cataracts on her eyes and coral growing on her shell.

She also had debilitated turtle syndrome, which meant she was lethargic and not eating — a dangerous combination. And so, on June 13, 2020, she was admitted to the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital for care.

But on Tuesday morning, as an amber sun rose above Folly Beach, Queen finally found her way home.

“She looks very ready to go,” Susan McLaughlin, an educator at the S.C. Aquarium, narrated as she captured the moment on a Facebook Live video.

When Queen was admitted for care, she weighed 147 pounds. Now, it would take seven aquarium staff members to lift all 202 pounds of her when they arrived at the beach for a private staff-only sea turtle release.

They hoisted her out of an open crate in a special yellow sling, and walked her down toward the water so that she could save her energy for the journey ahead. And, thanks to two cataract surgeries in each eye, Queen could now see again.

When her flippers touched the sand, she began moving forward. Then, she paused to feel her first ocean wave in 13 months.

After the waters washed over Queen, it was as if she was pulled onward by the receding tide itself. With her flippers digging into the sand, the loggerhead pushed herself forward and back toward the sea.

“Sometimes, if we watch closely, we can see her come up for one more big breath of air, too. Or,” McLaughlin said, chuckling, “she might just take off.”

Then the S.C. Aquarium staff burst into applause on the beach.

It was an emotional moment after a difficult year.

In the fall of 2020, it was unclear if the aquarium would even be able to continue doing this type of work.

Each year, about 80% of the aquarium’s income comes from its general admission tickets and membership sales. That once-dependable revenue stream evaporated in 2020, when the pandemic forced the aquarium to shut its doors for 68 days.

Compounding the pain, the closure also came at the start of the aquarium’s busy season.

As a result, the unexpected financial crisis threw the aquarium’s Sea Turtle Care Center, which has rehabilitated and released more than 300 turtles like Queen in the past 20 years, into jeopardy. There were also two rounds of layoffs that cut staff by 25%.

In March, after a public fundraising drive that asked visitors and locals to imagine a world without the aquarium, the organization announced the community had saved them and, as a result, creatures like Queen.

“It was inconceivable to us that we might lose our ability to educate schoolchildren, or save the lives of sick and injured sea turtles — programs that define the very heart and soul of our mission,” Kevin Mills, president and CEO of the South Carolina Aquarium, said in a statement at the time.

Tuesday’s release was private and not announced in advance to keep crowds down and make animal care the top priority. But the private release was also a special thank-you for the staff.

Many of them, McLaughlin said in the video, had never gotten to go to a sea turtle release themselves.

In addition to Queen, a juvenile Kemp’s ridley named Charlotte was also released.

Photos of sinking Folly Beach Pier raise concerns amid construction

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Beachgoers are concerned as a part of the Folly Beach Pier appears to be sinking. The pier has been closed for construction since October, but after photos captured a portion of the pier with a large ‘dip’ in it, people are wondering if the planned improvements will be enough. “What we’re seeing right now, is only a little bit of change and I only live seven miles away. I come quite often. I hope if there is any danger of sagging or could be a danger to anyone or us that ...

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Beachgoers are concerned as a part of the Folly Beach Pier appears to be sinking.

The pier has been closed for construction since October, but after photos captured a portion of the pier with a large ‘dip’ in it, people are wondering if the planned improvements will be enough.

“What we’re seeing right now, is only a little bit of change and I only live seven miles away. I come quite often. I hope if there is any danger of sagging or could be a danger to anyone or us that it will be corrected,” said Joyce Southwell, local.

The 13.8 million dollar project headed up by Charleston County Parks and Recreation is designed to ensure the spot will be here for years to come.

Sarah Reynolds with Charleston County Parks and Recreation explained the current situation:

“Currently visible at the construction site of the Folly Pier is the crane trestle, The crane trestle is in the footprint of the new pier, which will be built all the way out to the old “diamond head” area. Once the diamond head removal is complete, construction of the new pier will begin at that point and work its way back toward the “apron” (the area with the gift shop and restrooms). The crane trestle will be removed as portions of the new pier are constructed.”

Officials are working to calm the concerns of the public, assuring them that construction is going exactly as planned, despite setbacks from Tropical Storm Elsa.

“The Folly pier is a defining feature of the life of Folly. We are glad to see the investment being made to make sure that it will be a part of Folly for many more years. The pier hosts many events like fishing tournaments, fundraisers, and moonlight mixers that have been missing for the duration of the construction project. We look forward to the return of experiences like those.”

Aaron Pope, Folly Beach City Administrator

Joseph Paige, an employee at Folly Beach County Parks, says the result will be well worth the wait.

“Once it’s done everyone will come right back and the pier will be just as busy as before construction started,” said Paige.

The pier is still expected to reopen by spring of 2023.
