Service Areas

Whether your home has overgrown trees that need trimming or you have an unsightly stump that needs grinding, our team of tree experts is here to help. Curious what kind of tree care work we provide to homeowners in South Carolina?

Planet Green specializes in the following areas:

Tree Trimming in Isle of Palms

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 Isle of Palms

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 Isle of Palms 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 Isle of Palms

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 Isle of Palms

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.

10 Places Serving Up Delicious Frozen Cocktails This Summer In Greenville, SC

Here’s a summertime treat for the adults: grown-up frozen beverages in Greenville, SC. If you were a huge fan of slushies, Slurpees, or other frozen drinks as a child; that sensation of drinking down a slurry of flavored ice crystals has a cathartic effect.

Here’s a summertime treat for the adults: grown-up frozen beverages in Greenville, SC. If you were a huge fan of slushies, Slurpees, or other frozen drinks as a child; that sensation of drinking down a slurry of flavored ice crystals has a cathartic effect. As an adult, those frozen beverages are often spiked with wine or liquor, and make a great occasional treat after a long week of adulting.

Kidding Around’s Melanie set out to find the most delicious frozen beverages in Greenville, SC. She’s bringing readers the top spots to sit down and relax with a froséor other frozen adult beverage!

Finding A Frosé In Greenville, SC

I remember like it was yesterday. Someone on social media had posted about a frozen drink on Instagram and it looked amazing. What was this magical drink she spoke of? A frosty beverage of frozen rose and some extra ingredients all swirled together into a marvelous creation, and it was calling my name.

Sadly, the spot that inspired a love of these occasional treats no longer exists in Greenville. However, the anonymous social media personality and I are now friends in real life, and have had other food-inspired adventures together that include the occasional hunt for a good frosé.

Finding a frosé in Greenville is a little bit more challenging than in places like Charleston, where they seem to be found all around town. They do exist in the Upstate, and here’s where you can enjoy a sweet glass of frozen wine even if you aren’t a huge fan of fermented grapes.

One of the newest residents of Gather GVL making it so that you can enjoy a frosty wine beverage with sushi, a philly cheesesteak, pasta, burgers, or any of the other cuisines that are offered from Gather GVL vendors! They offer a roatating flavor selection, that includes flights incase you can’t make up your mind.

City Scape Winery

Where better to find frosé than at Greenville’s very own Wine Vintner? CityScape Winery offers visitors farm-to-table frosé. Food truck Saturdays allow you to relax in a beautiful setting and enjoy the wine slushie made from local grapes. Reservations aren’t required, but space fills up so you can schedule a tasting on the City Scape Winery Website.

Luna Rosa Gelato Cafe

Grab the kids a scoop of gelato, grab a cafe table outside and then order a frosé from Luna Rosa’s Bar in the back. The kids will be happy, and the parents will be happy. It’s a win-win in the summer heat! You can also enjoy dinner before those scoops of gelato! See why we have Luna Rosa at the top of our list of places to dine when in Greenville, SC!

Another option that offers a variety of dining options to go with your frosé. Vaughn’s Warehouse has a raw bar, a German restaurant, tacos, and more. You can grab a frosé and then eat from one of the food vendors, giving you tons of options. They also have live music on the weekends and plenty of room for kids to run around. That will allow you to enjoy this frosty treat in peace. I recently tried the “blue raspberry frosé” from The Taphouse. I don’t know why, but artificially tinted blue drinks always look so refreshing.

Topsoil Kitchen & Market

If you haven’t been to Topsoil Kitchen & Market yet, this news should seal the deal. They have frosé on top of all the other wonderful things on their farm-to-table menu! Gather up some friends and head to brunch at Topsoil Kitchen & Market, so you can eat from their delicious regularly updated menu and enjoy a grown-up beverage.

Delicious Frozen Drinks In Greenville, SC

Before there was frosé, there were other frozen cocktails that paved the way. There are places serving up unique frozen drinks in the Upstate that are perfect on a hot and humid day.

Mercado @ Gather GVL

If you’re a fan of sweet and spicy, then the Mangonada Margarita from Mercado is calling your name. This re-invented Mexican treat is traditionally served as a raspado, or a sno-cone. The addition of tajin chili powder, and a tamarind candy-covered straw is what makes this a true mangonada! They also serve frozen pina coladas, and margaritas daily.

Tacos and Blah Blah Bla

The Freezing Saucy Sangarita at Tacos and Blah Blah Bla is similar to a drink I first enjoyed at Disney Springs in Orlando. A frozen margarita swirled with sangria is the perfect treat at the end of a long week. Plus you get to eat the delicious tacos from Tacos and Blah Blah Bla, so it’s a win-win.

Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack

I’m embarrassed to admit that it took me years of living in South Carolina before I tried Cheerwine. However, once I tried the North Carolina-based beverage, I was a fan. I was thrilled to see that Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack offers Cheerwine whisky slushies to cool you down after eating that Nashville Hot Chicken. They also serve it sans the whisky for the kids, just don’t confuse the two.

Home Team BBQ

The Home Team BBQ Frozen Irish coffee is Irish in name only, because it’s actually a multicultural iced coffee! If you’ve never had Vietnamese coffee, the Home Team cocktail is the perfect marriage of supercharged Vietnamese coffee and Irish whiskey!

They also serve a signature frozen drink called “The Game Changer” that includes fruit juices, cream of coconut, nutmeg, and two kinds of rum. I don’t know how to explain the flavor, except for that it’s delicious! If you aren’t sure, ask your server for a sample taste.

If You Like Frosé And Getting Caught In The Rain

The Co-Op Charleston, SC: I feel it would be completely irresponsible for me to do an article about finding frozen drinks and frosé, and not mention this particular spot. Their social media pages have garnered fans from around the world, including people who will most likely never find themselves in the Palmetto State. The owner, Jess Patterson tells it like it is in his journal like posts on the Sullivan’s Island Co-Op account. His unfiltered, funny, quirky and honest approach to social media has turned this retired Manhattan stockbroker into the Frosé mogul of the Charleston area.

He often uses his platform to help the community, like recently offering deals to followers who shared a post about a young girl who was in desperate need of a kidney transplant.
*As of publication Hope is still in need, so if you have ever considered being a donor, this young lady needs the generosity of strangers right now.

The fact that the Frosé at the Co-Op is mind-numbingly delicious is a delightful bonus when you consider that most places that have such a viral aspect to their social media need to do so to compensate for the product.
That’s not the case here.

Do yourself a favor, and the next time you’re in the low country stop by and take a selfie in front of the #FreeBritney mural, grab a Frosé, and be nice to the help. Two of the young men working at the Co-Op just created a Co-Op Tik Tok where they re-enact bad yelp reviews. If this doesn’t make you love them more, I don’t know what will.

The Co-Op has three locations: Sullivans Island, Isle of Palms, and Downtown Charleston at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co.

Charley Crockett will be back soon with new album Music City USA that's out September 17 via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. He's just shared new single "I Need Your Love," a sweet and sultry slice of southern soul.

“I like to think of my sound as ‘Gulf & Western’, and this number here is all gulf coast music,” says Crockett. “Something you’d hear out of southeast Texas recording studios or southern Louisiana. I’d been foolin’ around with this song for a while, and when we went to record it, we decided at the last minute to double the length of the chorus. I felt right then that we had something. I’d wanted to bring the horns back for a couple tunes on this album. Soul and Country R&B from the deep south is a whole lot of who I am. I hope it shows though on ‘I Need Your Love’”.

You can watch the video for "I Need Your Love," which Charley co-directed with Bobby Cochran, below.

Charley is on tour as we speak and dates will continue through the summer and into fall, including a show at Red Rocks with Orville Peck, the Hinterland Festival, a taping of Austin City Limits and an appearance at the ACL fest, as well as shows in Nashville, Louisville, Detroit, Atlanta, Boston, Brooklyn, Richmond, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and more.

Crockett also shared the video for the album single “I Need Your Love”, a southern soul number accompanied by a retro-styled wide-screen video directed by Bobby Cochran.

“I like to think of my sound as ‘Gulf & Western’, and this number here is all gulf coast music,” explains Crockett. “Something you’d hear out of southeast Texas recording studios or southern Louisiana.

Crockett also announced additions to his extensive US tour schedule, and he’ll be announcing even more dates soon. Crockett is a part of the line-up at several premier festivals this summer, including both weekends of Austin City Limits festival, MerleFest, Under the Big Sky festival and Hinterland Music Festival, and he will perform at Orville Peck’s Rodeo at Red Rocks on July 22nd with Peck and Yola.

Crockett will tape his debut for prestigious US TV show Austin City Limits on July 28th, joining a season 47 line-up that also includes Miranda Lambert, Brittany Howard, Jon Batiste, Leon Bridges, Sarah Jarosz, Billy Strings, Jade Bird, Brandy Clark, Terry Allen, Dayglow and Jackson Browne. Crockett was also recently nominated for the 2021 Americana Music Association awards “Emerging Act of the Year” alongside Amythyst Kiah, Joy Oladokun, Allison Russell and Waxahatchee.

Crockett is also a part of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s latest exhibit, “American Currents”, alongside acts like Eric Church, The Chicks, Luke Combs, Mickey Guyton and Maren Morris. The San Benito, TX native donated the custom Fort Lonesome suit he wore during his Newport Folk Festival debut in 2019 to the exhibit, and he’s currently featured on a larger-than-life billboard outside the museum in Nashville alongside one of his heroes, fellow San Benito, TX native Freddy Fender.

Synthwave band Doom Flamingo has released their newest EP album, Flamingo, on June 30. The band has also announced a slew of tour dates for this summer, including a stop at the Capitol Theater.

Based in South Carolina, Doom Flamingo is a self-described “synthwave beast with a Jekyll and Hyde element to their songwriting.” Similar to the contrasting words in their name, Doom Flamingo creates a musical breed of both heavy electronica and dance-floor-ready pop.

The group features bassist Ryan Stasik, of the jam band Umphrey’s McGee, alongside a cast of musicians including dynamic vocalist Kanika Moore, guitarist Thomas Kenney, drummer Stu White, saxophonist Mike Quinn, and keyboardist Ross Bogan.

Flamingo serves as an upbeat alter ego to their 2020 Doom EP, a darker inspired collection. Full of ’80s-style keyboard beats, positive lyrics and an infectious groove, the new EP has a nostalgic summer beach-trip vibe.

This project makes me want to lace up a pair of roller skates and head on down to the boardwalk.

Ryan Stasik (bassist of Umphrey’s McGee and Doom Flamingo)

Despite this fun-loving and beachy attitude, the group stays vigilant in their belief in justice and equity. Songs like “Untraditional” and “Somebody” help spread the message that people deserve to live confidently in their truth, even if they’re outside expected societal values.

Doom Flamingo takes inspiration from a wide array of artists, from electronica pioneers Daft Punk to pop-icon Tina Turner (listen to their rendition of Turner’s “The Best”). Interestingly enough, one of the chief inspirations for Flamingo is former First Lady Michelle Obama. The band even wrote track 4, “Michelle,” in her honor.

‘Michelle’ is a song dedicated to the women that exhibit love, intelligence, and charisma because it feels good to deposit positive energy and be fed with the same. I’m inspired by Michelle Obama.

Kanika Moore (lead singer of Doom Flamingo)

Flamingo can be streamed on all major platforms starting June 30. The band will also be bringing their new EP to a handful of select cities in the coming months, as part of their 2021 Summer Tour. For ticket information, check out their website.

Charlotte and NC coast brace for Hurricane Elsa. Here’s the latest on the storm.

While much uncertainty remained Saturday about its ultimate path, Hurricane Elsa was still projected to barrel into the Carolinas with fierce winds and rain by mid- to late-week, according to National Hurricane Center forecasters. And the National Weather Service office in Newport/Morehead City put coastal residents on alert Saturday morning. “Elsa could bring impacts to Eastern NC by as early as mid week,” NWS meteorologists posted on Twitter at 6 a.m. Saturday. “It is too early for any specific impacts, but ...

“Elsa could bring impacts to Eastern NC by as early as mid week,” NWS meteorologists posted on Twitter at 6 a.m. Saturday. “It is too early for any specific impacts, but residents and visitors are urged to pay close attention to the forecast over the coming days.”

The storm could reach the Carolinas late Wednesday and into early Thursday, according to the NWS.

At 8 a.m. Saturday, the first Atlantic hurricane of the season was “moving rapidly” toward Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea, where conditions were “expected to deteriorate over the next several hours,” according to the Hurricane Center located in Miami.

On Friday, the storm “blew off roofs and snapped trees” in the eastern Caribbean islands, the Associated Press reported.

The category 1 storm packed 75 mph winds, but Hurricane Center forecasters on Friday night said the storm could develop into a category 3 hurricane at some point. Category 3 storms carry winds of 111 mph to 129 mph and cause “major damage,” according to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale on the National Hurricane Center’s website.

By comparison, Hurricane Hugo was a category 4 hurricane when it made landfall in Isle of Palms, S.C., in September 1989. Gusts over 100 mph were recorded in Charlotte in that storm, according to the National Weather Service. In 1999, Hurricane Floyd made landfall at Cape Fear, N.C, as a Category 2 hurricane with 105 mph winds, the NWS reported.

Tropical storm-force winds from Elsa could arrive in the Charlotte area by 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to National Hurricane Center maps. Such winds range from 39 mph to 73 mph, according to the NWS.

In a bulletin issued at 8 a.m. Saturday, Hurricane Center forecasters cautioned “the details of the long-term track are still uncertain.”

At the same time, they said, the Hurricane Center’s “intensity forecast shows little change in strength through tonight, followed by slow weakening on Sunday and early Monday. Slight restrengthening is forecast when Elsa moves north of Cuba and across the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

“This forecast is a little lower than the previous one in the short term, but is largely unchanged at the longer forecast times.”
