Tree Trimming in James 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 James 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 James 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 James 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.

James Island congregation attempting to find ‘message in the mess’ after church fire

JAMES ISLAND — When Fort Johnson Baptist assembles for worship this Christmas, members will gather in the church’s gymnasium, not the sanctuary.
That’s because a fire destroyed the church’s main worship space in September.
But Fort Johnson’s parishioners understand that the spirit of Christmas isn’t limited to a specific space. The joy and love that accompanies the holiday season can be manifested wherever believers come together.
After all, this wasn’t the first time Fort Johnson Baptist had seen devastation.
A spray-painted wooden sign was used to announce worship services days after Hurricane Hugo in 1989 toppled the church’s steeple. The sign, which had been stored above the church’s ceiling, reemerged after a portion of the overhead surface gave way during the September blaze.
“It’s a good reminder that even after disaster, good things can happen,” said Pastor Marty Middleton, 43.
During the Christmas holiday season — one of the most important times of year for the Christian community — Fort Johnson finds itself attempting to preserve a sense of hope as the congregation continues grappling with the destruction of its house of worship. At the same time, congregants are revisiting what it truly means to be a church, inspired by an outpouring of support from the community and congregations that have faced similar challenges.
A message from the mess
A preschool student was the first to smell the smoke on Sept. 9, telling his mother, “it smells like a cookout out here.” The boy’s mother, a teacher at the church’s preschool, called emergency officials around 8:30 a.m. to report a fire at the church, located at 1473 Camp Road.
Firefighters with the James Island Public Service District Fire Department and other area agencies were able to put out the blaze within an hour. Officials determined a lightning strike hit the steeple and caused the fire. The steeple fell during the blaze, taking about half of the roof with it.
The fire damage is primarily concentrated in the sanctuary. The church’s educational building, which houses the preschool, wasn’t harmed by the fire itself, though it did receive water damage from fire hoses.
Helen Needham grew up in Fort Johnson. Her family served as charter members of the congregation, established by James Island Baptist in 1960.
Fort Johnson’s sanctuary holds precious memories for their family. Needham, her sisters and her daughter all had their weddings in the church’s sanctuary. Needham’s children were baptized there. She held back tears as she recalled the day the building was engulfed in flames.
“When I saw that the church steeple was gone, I cried,” she said.
Standing in the pulpit of the sanctuary earlier this month, Middleton surveyed the rubble. Broken glass, charred wood and other debris was scattered across the floor and atop pews. The sanctuary’s ceiling caved in, leaving a gaping hole that reveals a blue sky. Mold has overtaken many of the walls. The floor was soaked with rainwater.
The destruction is a visual reminder of the messiness that exists in the world, Middleton said. The concept rings especially true this year as we all continue to navigate, with uncertainty, the pandemic.
“Sometimes, when you come to church, your life is a mess,” Middleton said. “But God is in the business of restoring that mess — taking that mess and making a message.”
The church has adjusted, relocating its preschool to a separate campus building and its worship services to the church’s gymnasium, normally used for local recreational basketball games. The pastor anticipates reconstruction will begin in a few weeks, once the church’s insurance company determines whether it will be feasible to renovate the existing sanctuary, or if the church should tear it down and build a new one.
Middleton said his task is to help his congregation stay focused on the church’s mission and to remain positive. His most recent sermon series, “Hopeful Expectation,” tells congregants to expect goodness at the end of this tragedy. This ties into the holiday season, when themes of hope and peace are prominent.
Fort Johnson’s members have been looking forward to positive, yet simple, changes that might come out of fire, such fresh carpet, new pews, and possibly a new sanctuary.
The worship services, though in a nontraditional setting, have been a source of inspiration. Attendance has been steady and a sense of hope permeates the room, Middleton said.
“God’s promises are true,” Middleton said. “So when he says he comes to bring peace and comfort, he’ll do that when we trust in him.”
The tragedy has also taught parishioners at Fort Johnson to focus more on relationships.
Since the fire, church members have come together some Wednesday nights to pray specifically for the restoration process. New relationships are being formed, too. The congregation has grown with the addition of five families who’ve joined the church in the last three months.
For the most part, Fort Johnson has sought to maintain a regular rhythm of Christmas programs and mission activities.
The church’s preschool relocated its annual Christmas pageant to the front lawn. Small children, dressed to depict angels and wise men, retold the biblical Christmas narrative and sang holiday songs. The church continued its involvement in Operation Christmas Child, an initiative where churches buy Christmas gifts for children across the world. The congregation has also bought gifts for a few local families caring for foster children.
“We haven’t let the fire stop us, “Needham said.
Continuing to serve
Fort Johnson has also seen an outpouring of support from the community.
One church donated sound equipment for the church to use during Sunday worship. Another congregation gave Fort Johnson toys and tables to use for the preschool to replace items that had been damaged by smoke. Local businesses donated food for congregants who, on the weekends, had been setting up chairs and equipment in preparation for Sunday worship.
Several other faith communities sent financial donations, including St. Andrew’s in Mount Pleasant, which donated $10,000 to Fort Johnson to express its support.
St. Andrew’s can relate to the difficulties being faced by the James Island group. The Mount Pleasant church lost its entire ministry center to a massive blaze in 2018, leaving the roughly 2,000-member congregation without a place to worship and its day school without a place to meet.
Bishop Steve Wood recalled that the days following the fire involved mostly addressing those immediate concerns. But Wood said he also tried to keep St. Andrew’s focused on its mission of service.
In doing so, he wrote a letter after the blaze that eventually became a regular form of communication, keeping members encouraged and updated on the reconstruction timeline.
“I just told them we’d be OK,” he said.
The church then engaged in ministry outside the building. St. Andrew’s “adopted” a Mount Pleasant fire station and served firefighters baked goods. Lawyers and architects in the congregation offered their skillsets to help the church with its renovation process. Members conducted prayer walks throughout the Mount Pleasant neighborhood where the church sits. Parishioners bought rosebushes for a few neighbors. Congregants began building relationships with teachers at Mount Pleasant Academy, where the church began holding Sunday services.
Wood’s advice for Fort Johnson is to, in spite of the tragedy, seek opportunities to serve others.
“The most challenging thing is that a fire, and these kinds of circumstances, can be so consuming that you miss what God is actually doing in the moment,” Wood said. “Maintain a mission focus. Keep the main thing the main thing. Be attentive to what God is doing around you. He’s mobilizing people around you.”

Charleston remains a popular destination, and the city’s expanding luxury hotel scene reflects that trend.
California-based Auberge Resorts Collection plans to debut its first planned luxury hotel in South Carolina come 2024 in the form of The Dunlin, located within the Kiawah River master-planned community on Johns Island.
“The Dunlin will offer an unforgettable escape where guests can immerse themselves in the pristine natural setting of Johns Island and the culturally rich attractions of Charleston,” Auberge Chairman Dan Friedkin said in a statement.
The Dunlin property will include 72 cottage-style guest rooms and suites and 19 villas, as well as a main lodge and porch, great rooms and a library lounge. Amenities encompass a pool with cabanas, full-service spa, community farmstead, and access to the community’s Spring House riverfront swim and fitness facilities.
A riverfront restaurant with outdoor deck will also be available, as will two event spaces, including a 10,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor event hall.
“We are pleased to partner with Auberge Resorts Collection to create The Dunlin, which will be one of the most remarkable new resorts in the country,” Beach Co. CEO John Darby said. “Auberge has a terrific track record of creating the most unique hospitality experiences in the world, and this endeavor’s intimate setting will bring highly personalized service with a coastal experience inspired by the local environment.”
Built into the Kiawah River community, which puts emphasis in natural surrounding elements, The Dunlin will consist of 2,000 acres of land with 20 miles of riverfront nature trails and marshlands. Guests will be able to participate in nature excursions on the property, including fly fishing, crabbing and boating, as well as paddle boarding, hiking and biking.
Architect Robert Glazier was chosen to design the resort, and Amanda Lindroth of Lindroth Design will lead the interior design of the property.
Construction financing was provided by United Bank’s Charleston offices.

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The Barrel on Folly Road is a mostly open-air space that often hosts live music, events, food trucks, and guests and their dogs.
The city of Charleston’s Director of Livability and Tourism Dan Riccio says in June the city started receiving complaints and concerns from nearby residents about guests of The Barrel parking in their neighborhood and along the roads.
He says city officials inspected the business and issued two citations on June 25. One was from the Fire Marshal for over occupancy and the other from zoning for not meeting parking requirements to accommodate all guests. Riccio says The Barrel’s occupancy exceeded 100 people, with the requirement for the business set at only 49.
Legally right now there’s only 16 parking spaces to accommodate that he says.
Riccio says even though it is an outdoor space they still have an occupancy load. He says they have never been approved for the outdoor area through the zoning department.
Riccio says they are working with the owner and zoning officials to develop a plan to bring the business into compliance with zoning and occupancy requirements and legally accommodate guests.
He says this is a common concern and process they get from the public on a regular basis.
Zach Barrack says he’s been coming to The Barrel for the past few years. He says he usually parks down the road behind The Barrel where no houses are or parks at a friend’s house and walks. He says he’s never had a resident complain to him.
He says he can’t wait for The Barrel to open back up.
“I’m definitely confident in their abilities. They seem to have a good plan in place from what I’ve heard, so I’m definitely confident,” Barrack said. “I mean, there’s no way the city can shut down a place that’s not only a great place for the humans, but a great place for the dogs. And especially with it being open air with COVID and everything going on.”
Riccio says another court hearing will be in two weeks.
Chad Reynolds, the owner of The Barrel, released the following statement:
As far as occupancy goes, I am working to comply with what the City is requiring in order to increase my occupancy. The Certificate of Occupancy from 2013 states that it is only 49, including the yard. I questioned that last part in a meeting with Zoning in late 2019 and was told that they didn’t have the same requirements for outdoor patron use areas back in 2013 when my plans were approved. Regardless, I’ve hired a design professional who is working with me on a plan that will create more parking spaces on my property thus decreasing my yard space, but also increasing my occupancy. We just have to find that balance. But yet I worry that, given how badly my neighbors behind me seemingly want The Barrel gone, I might be fighting an extremely difficult battle as they have linked up with some folks with a lot of pull in our community. I hope this isn’t the case, but it is this fear that is causing me to lose sleep at night.
To the insufficient parking citation, for 6+ years my patrons parked in the right-of-way down Battery Island Dr. and along Folly Road with no issues. At least none that I was made aware of. But a unilateral decision was made many months ago to completely surround my business with 17 No Parking signs. Starting at the Folly Boat and going around the corner pretty far down Battery Island Dr. But rather than fight this action, I am willing to sacrifice valuable yard space in order to hopefully make everyone happy. I hope to have a site plan submitted to the City by Friday.”

Ramen rolls into Park Circle restaurant with help from Charleston-area chefs

Ramen’s well-documented rise took hold in Charleston last winter, when chefs turned to comfort food in the face of the ongoing pandemic. This led many, including a Rutledge Avenue restaurant and the owners of a Johns Island hot chicken joint, to serve their take on the popular broth-based noodle soup.
While these two temporary ramen outposts will not return in 2022, another is set to commence in Park Circle Jan. 5.
Every Wednesday in January, a star-studded cast of guest chefs will roll into Jackrabbit Filly for the Park Circle restaurant’s annual Ramen with Friends series. The event benefiting the Lowcountry Food Bank is in its fifth or sixth year; Jackrabbit Filly owners Shuai and Corrie Wang can’t quite remember when it debuted.
One January, the Wangs brought their Short Grain pop-up and food truck to The Daily, where they invited guest chefs to serve a ramen of their choosing. In its third year, Short Grain traveled to different restaurants for ramen-themed kitchen takeovers, and the Wangs have hosted the event at Jackrabbit Filly in the two years since its 2019 opening.
“Originally, it was just an idea to help us get through the slow, cold month of January,” Corrie Wang said. “We kind of keep it so we really know the people we invite. It really is ramen with our friends. It’s a really intense way to start a new year, but we always have a blast.”
Last year, Julian Lippe, Bob Cook, James London and Jeremiah Bacon stopped by 4628 Spruill Ave., and this January will bring a new group of chefs … and sommeliers.
On Jan. 5, Graft Wine Shop owners Femi Oyediran and Miles White will kick off Ramen with Friends. The Ordinary executive chef Tori Schumacher, Jacques Larson (Wild Olive and Obstinate Daughter) and Vivian Howard (Lenoir) round out the month on Jan. 12, 19 and 26. Each chef’s ramen will be served with a limited Jackrabbit Filly menu.
“It’s always been one of the great parts of the job,” said Schumacher, describing chef collaborations. “The creative energy really starts to flow.”
Larson, who says he visits Jackrabbit Filly at least once a month, is planning to bring a duck ramen with house-made noodles on Jan. 19. Former Two Boroughs Larder chef Josh Keeler, who helped local pasta producer Rio Bertolini’s develop its alkaline noodles, is currently working in the kitchen at the Obstinate Daughter, so Larson will have some help preparing for the event.
“Nine times out of 10 days when I go out to eat on my days off, it’s going to be Asian food in some form,” Larson said. “I’m a huge fan of Shuai and Corrie. To be asked to do this is just a natural fit.”
Proceeds from Ramen with Friends will be donated to the Lowcountry Food Bank and Neighbors Together. In the last two years, the event has raised around $14,000, according to Corrie Wang.
