Tree Trimming in Goose Creek

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.

Tree Trimming in Goose Creek

Benefits of Tree Trimming in Goose Creek

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 Goose Creek

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 Goose Creek 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

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 Goose Creek

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.

Stump Removal in Goose Creek

Benefits of Stump Removal in Goose Creek

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.

Reduce Headaches

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.

Goose Creek High School’s football team has captured three straight region championships and reeled in as many player of the year honors from the offensive side of the ball in the process.

It’s easy to overlook the guys in the trenches who help make those accomplishments possible. Gators senior lineman Jayden Johnson was hard to miss, though. Johnson moved defenders around quite easily at times, opening holes aplenty to run through and giving quarterbacks time to throw.

“Jayden is a good guy,” Gators coach Jason Winstead said. “He’s not a problem. He doesn’t get into trouble and causes no issues. He’s had a great career, and he’s a captain.”

For his efforts in the classroom and on the field of play, Johnson earned a scholarship opportunity to play football at South Carolina State in Orangeburg.

Johnson (6-4, 305) started four seasons up front for the Gators, garnered three all-region nods and two all-state selections. He was chosen to the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team and ultimately ended up playing in the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl in Myrtle Beach on Dec. 11. The Shrine Bowl was canceled because of COVID-19 concerns for the second year in a row.

Johnson’s South squad won the all-star game for the third time in a row.

“In four years, Jayden blocked for over 15,000 yards of offense,” Winstead said. “That’s a lot. You don’t find many guys who start all four years in 5A football.”

Equally as impressive was a standout performance in the classroom.

“That 3.4 grade-point average is what got him this opportunity,” Winstead said. “If he didn’t have the grades, none of this would be happening. First question all these college coaches want to ask is how are his grades. If they can’t get into the school, they’re not going to stay a long time. It’s going to be a short conversation.”

With Johnson anchoring the front, future S.C. State teammate Demetri Simmons earned back-to-back region player of the year honors.

Simmons, a running back who also signed with the Bulldogs on Dec. 15, touched it 566 times in three seasons on the varsity level and totaled 4,138 yards and 44 touchdowns. He was named all-state as a senior and also a team captain.

“He really needs no introduction,” Winstead said of Simmons. “He’s an outstanding young man.”

Simmons was selected to the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl but missed the game with an injury.

Goose Creek father and daughter asking for help after losing home to fire

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — John Earnhardt left his home for only 30 minutes on Tuesday.

When he returned, he walked upon a tragedy. Everything he and his daughter owned was gone, destroyed by a fire.

“I am praying 100 times a day looking for answers. I have gone through floods and hurricanes in the 23 years, but nothing as devastating as this where I lose everything, and I lose my pets. It is just really hard right now,” said Earnhardt.

Earnhardt is the caretaker of his 44 year old daughter Kristene, who has special needs.

Helping her cope with the fire, the inability to go home and the loss of their two cats has been a challenge unlike any other.

“I start trying to explain to her, and then I break down and start crying. I am trying to be strong for both of us, but I do not know how to do it," says Earnhardt.

Kristene has had difficulties understanding exactly what has happened to her home.

“(It's) very hard because she is used to going into her room, watching her own TV shows, playing her video games on her TV and all that is gone now. Everything has been taken away from her," says Earnhardt.

John has been dealing with loss all month long. On December 1, he lost his mother.

“I am very depressed. Especially here at Christmas time. I have to deal with my daughter asking me questions and I do not know how to answer her. I do not know where to turn to. I need some help right now,” says Earnhardt.

The cause of the fire is still unknown. He says it may be six to seven months before he is able to go back into his home again. As of right now, he and Kristene are staying with some friends until they can get back onto their feet.

If you would like to support John and Kristene you can do so by going to GoFundMe.

GOOSE CREEK — Aspiring business owners in the city are expected to receive more tools in the coming year to move their ideas forward.

The city of Goose Creek has finalized a two-year partnership with Lowcountry Local First, which supports the economic development of local businesses.

With the partnership will come a series of courses, workshops and resources centered around business management and planning. The goal is to create a pool of resources for local business owners in the Goose Creek area.

“We think this is an excellent opportunity for folks,” said Matt Brady, the city’s economic development director.

In the coming year, the city and Lowcountry Local First will launch two training programs — one in English and one in Spanish.

There, attendees will receive hands-on training on how to take their existing businesses or ideas for a business to the next level. A minimum of 70 percent of the participants will be low-income community members.

The reason for offering Spanish courses and prioritizing low-income residents is to make sure that everyone gets help. They are also demographics in the most need of resources and advice, Brady said.

Brady gave an example of a local artisan. That person could have the right idea and create an amazing product to be sold. But they’ve likely never thought about something like navigating a commercial lease.

“That’s a topic we could address,” he said.

The same could go for things like marketing or attaining a loan.

Lowcountry Local First will also develop four workshops through its Good Business Workshop Series. Those courses will be for local business owners and is expected to help them connect with experts, the city and resources in general to help with their business development.

Other programs in the works with the partnership will include a community storefront challenge where the winner will be given a one-year subsidized lease rate through a property owner working with the city.

They will also be working with business owners in developing their own buy local campaigns.

In a news release, Jacquie Berger, the executive director of Lowcountry Local First, said they were excited about launching the projects with the city.

“This work will build community wealth and enhance the quality of life for Goose Creek residents now and in the years to come,” she said.

Over the years Berkeley County has been one of the fastest growing counties in South Carolina. Goose Creek is its largest city.

With all of the growth, Goose Creek staff members said the purpose of putting so much attention on local businesses is to help maintain the city’s unique charm.

The city is expected to push the new resources throughout the month of January. Those interested are advised to be on the look out for additional information at businessinthecreek.com as well as the city’s social media accounts.

The Fort Dorchester varsity basketball teams warmed up for region play with a sweep of Berkeley on Jan. 5.

The Fort boys team claimed a 71-48 win over the Stags in North Charleston to improve to 12-1. The Patriots’ only loss came to Riverside on Dec. 29.

“We have a little momentum going into region play but our guys need to get focused,” Fort Dorchester coach Thomas McElveen said. “They aren’t really being challenged much and when you start thinking you’re good that’s when you lose because you don’t do the little things that you normally do. That’s what happened in the Christmas tournament. We had a lot of missed layups and missed free throws. We should have won that game.”

The Patriots did seem to have better focus when they hosted Berkeley and jumped out to a 26-10 lead in the opening quarter. McElveen was then comfortable substituting freely and his team rolled to a 36-23 halftime lead and eventually the victory.

Senior Devin Geddis led the charge, scoring a game-high 16 points. Senior Malik Horlback added 11 points and senior Omarion Green added 10. Chauncey Capers, Marion (Boots) Mitchell, Davion Joyner, Demetris McKelvey, Camden Crummey and Knick Pickering also scored for the Patriots.

Fort Dorchester was 11 of 20 at the free-throw line. Pickering and Horlback led in rebounds with four each.

Monterio McNeil led Berkeley with 14 points. Kaden Gamble added 10 points for the Stags.

Fort Dorchester girls

The Fort Dorchester girls earned a 47-29 victory over Berkeley to improve to 10-5 on the season.

Junior Denver Mathis led the way for Fort Dorchester with 12 points. Junior Kwayasia White added eight points and senior Jasmine Mitchell added seven. Makenna Bines, Kai Mack, Cailah Tucker, Genesis Johnson, London Alford and Cailyn Webber also scored for the Lady Patriots. Fort Dorchester was 14 of 20 at the free-throw line.

Mitchell and Mack led in rebounds with a team-high eight each.

Fort Dorchester opens region play Jan. 11 at home against Ashley Ridge. The girls’ game is scheduled for 6 p.m. and the boys’ game will follow. They will then hit the road for games at Goose Creek Jan. 14 and at Stall Jan. 18.

The Goose Creek boys are ranked 10th in the most recent S.C. Basketball Coaches Association Class AAAAA boys poll while Fort Dorchester is ranked third. The Stall girls are ranked seventh.

UNK wrestling finishes 3rd, nearly unseats defending national champion

LOUISVILLE, Ken. (KSNB) - The fifth-ranked UNK wrestling team easily got past Newberry (S.C.) College to place third at the 2022 U.S. Marine Corps/NWCA Multi-Division National Duals Friday evening.

The two-day, double elimination tournament featured brackets in NCAA Divisions II & and III, the NAIA, junior college and women’s ranks. UNK (5-2) was hoping to win this event for a third time (2003 and 2007). However, the Lopers fell to second-ranked and defending national champion St. Cloud State, 19-14, in one semifinal match.

The Huskies (8-1) went on to lose to top-ranked and top-seeded Central Oklahoma in the finals by the same score. Against the unranked Wolves, who upset both McKendree (Ill.) and Upper Iowa on Thursday, the Lopers used three tech falls, two falls, two majors and two forfeits to move to 2-3 all-time against the school from Newberry, S.C.

Lincoln veteran Wesley Dawkins (133 lbs.) had a fall in just 1:19, Kearney native Lee Herrington (285 lbs.) stuck his Wolf foe in 4:09 with second-ranked Matt Malcom (165 lbs.) recording his fifth tech fall in his last six matches, 20-2. That tally featured 12-near fall points, three takedowns and a reversal. The back-and-forth dual with St. Cloud saw the Huskies win the last two matches to advance.

Second-ranked Noah Ryan (197 lbs.) used a third-period takedown and riding time to slip past senior Hayden Prince (Goose Creek S.C.) by a 6-5 score. Prince tallied three points in the final 14 seconds but riding time was the deciding factor. Defending national champion Kameron Teacher (285 lbs.) then iced things with a 14-4 major decision. To start the day, 11th-ranked Paxton Creese used a third-period takedown and riding time to edge sixth-ranked Josh Portillo (125 lbs.) by a 5-3 count.

Both teams didn’t use nationally-ranked individuals; SCSU’s Garret Vos (3rd/133 lbs.) and Colby Njos (2nd/157 lbs.) and UNK’s Billy Higgins (11th/ 174 lbs.). The Lopers saw Malcom (10-1) and Dawkins (8-0) have major decisions with 10th-ranked Austin Eldredge (McPherson, Kan.) beating 12th-ranked Billy Pitzner, 6-5, at 184 pounds thanks to a four-point near fall to start the final period. UNK hosts Grand View (La.) next Saturday at the Health & Sports Center. The Vikings placed first in the NAIA bracket this weekend and have won nine of the last 10 NAIA national titles.
