Tree Trimming in Ladson
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 Ladson
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 Ladson
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 Ladson
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.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD) – Several people are sifting through what is left of their belongings after a major fire broke out at a Ladson storage facility on Tuesday morning.
The emergency call came in at 7:46 a.m. saying Ladson Self Storage was on fire. The fire destroyed a dozen units at the facility off Highway 78.
Wesley Cliff, who owns Living Rock Landscapes, keeps tools, equipment, and some vehicles for his company at the storage facility.
“I was on my way to work this morning and I pull up to the front of the gate and there’s a guy out there – he’s bleeding from his head, and he just asked for help, and call 9-1-1,” said Cliff.
Cliff said he was just trying to figure out what was going on.
“I look in through the gate and I see up there, I mean there’s smoke everywhere. So, I drive to the back and there’s multiple units on fire,” he recalled.
The fire was ripping through the storage units.
“There was another guy running from the back- he’s coming up to the front saying call 911, and about that time these guys were already here, and they pulled in there and they started getting everything unloaded and started fighting the fire and cutting the doors open. It was a pretty big fire. Got pretty big for a minute,” said Cliff.
12 units were destroyed by fire or heavy smoke damage.
“Units went to work immediately pulling hand lines, starting to extinguish the fire,” explained Battalion Chief Charles Evans with C&B Fire Department.
Numerous fire departments responded. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this point.
And as for the man with blood on his head, officials told News 2 he had minor injuries that did not require EMS transportation.
“Sounds like he was in the unit, perhaps fell down a ladder or some stairs, and one of the units when he was trying to get away to report the fire,” said Batt. Chief Evans.
“Luckily for us, it wasn’t one of our units. But unfortunately, there were some other contractors back there. It was their units; it’s a total loss for those guys. It’s sad that that stuff happens, but they got here fast, they got it put out pretty quickly,” said Cliff.
Crews were on the scene for several hours as they worked to extinguish the flames.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD)- The annual Coastal Carolina Fair is underway at Exchange Park in Ladson.
Most fairgoers have their eyes and stomachs on fair food for the first day.
“They always have good food and it’s just a good time to spend with family. They have a little arts and crafts center where you can see the students’ local talents,” said Jasmine Kelly.
“Sausage dogs and French fries. Walk around and look and see what’s going on,” said Woody Barsha.
One of the new food items on the menu is an Oreo cookie crusted turkey leg.
“No I don’t think so I’ll stick to French fries,” said Barsha.
“I can’t eat that much, but I will have an elephant ear,” said Kelly.
There are 10 new rides this year as well. One of them is a Ferris Wheel that’s 12 stories tall and comes from The Netherlands.
Fair organizers say that those new attraction and food items are great additions, but having a full-scale fair is also something to celebrate.
“We’re really excited about opening up because this is the first really big open fair we’ve had since COVID-19 has happened. We say ‘New in 22,’ and that’s what we’re doing because we have brand new rides, we have many new food vendors so we’re really excited about starting the year off right,” said Gary Leonard from the office of Media and Publicity Relations at the Coastal Carolina Fair.
Most families make the fair a tradition, but it’s even more special for Dan Caskey.
“Today’s my birthday. Every year I have a party and bring this to town to share with everybody else. It’s a great tradition. We love coming out here and having a fun time with the family,” said Caskey.

The use of metal detectors and a clear plastic bag policy will continue for this season, and that there will be plenty of security. Some of it will be around the clock during the fair’s two-week run.
“The No. 1 rule we have around here that tells us if we’ve had a good fair is if we’ve had a safe fair," said Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson Jay Wallace.
All rides are inspected by multiple agencies, Grimm said.

LADSON — A new recreational vehicle vendor is setting up shop in the Charleston area.
RV One Superstores, owned by RV Retailers LLC of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., plans to build a new location on Treeland Drive in Ladson near the College Park Road exit at Interstate 26.
An affiliate of the company bought the nearly 16-acre site next to American Biker in late August for $2.95 million, according to Berkeley County land records.
Under plans filed with state environmental regulators, the retailer is applying for a stormwater permit for 13.3 acres. The wooded site abuts a creek, but the applicant says no wetlands will be disturbed. Part of the property to the east where wetlands are located is not included in the development, according to the company’s site plan.
The company doesn’t have a target date for construction to begin, but the new recreational vehicle store is expected to open sometime in 2021, according to RV Retailers President CEO Jon Ferrando.
“Charleston is an excellent, growing market, and we look forward to creating new jobs in the area and selling and servicing RVs for customers living in and traveling through Charleston,” Ferrando said.
The size of the sales and service center has not been determined, but a store that recently broke ground in Tyler, Texas, is about 24,000 square feet. The number of employees can range between 25 and 60.
RV One offers 11 locations in the U.S., including another one in South Carolina in Myrtle Beach, which opened in July 2019. Others are in Florida, New York and Iowa.
RV Retailers LLC is the parent of seven other recreational vehicle companies.
They include Camper Clinic, CCRV, Cousins RV, Explorer USA, Motor Home Specialists, Sunny’s RV and Tom’s Camperland.
In South Carolina the company also owns Sunny’s RV in Duncan near Spartanburg.
Altogether, RV Retailers operates 34 dealerships offering more than 35 brands in eight states. In addition to the Palmetto State, they are located in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New York, North Carolina and Texas.
Profits are mixed, but South Carolina-based banks are holding their own on the deposit front based on the early returns.
The first few out of the gate in issuing their quarterly updates hauled in a combined $958 million from new and existing customers in the first quarter of the year, led by a nine-figure inflow at United Community Bank.
The issue of how much money federally insured lenders are entrusted with to redeploy into the economy came into sharp focus last week, when a problem child of the industry released its latest results. First Republic revealed that its customers withdrew a stunning $102 billion last quarter, driven largely by concerns about the San Francisco bank’s health after two other financial institutions bit the dust in mid-March.
The so-called contagion from the failures didn’t show up in the first-quarter figures for the Palmetto State.
Greenville-based United Community, for instance, reported that its customer deposits increased $525 million through March 31 across its multistate franchise, not including the accounts it picked up from a recent acquisition, while crosstown rival Southern First added $293 million.
Myrtle Beach’s South Atlantic pulled in more than $40 million in new money for the same period at its 12 offices up and down the coast, bringing the total to $1.26 billion.
“While deposits and liquidity in the banking system have been called into focus in recent weeks, our deposits grew 13.2 percent ... on an annualized basis,” CEO Wayne Wicker said Tuesday.
Lexington-based First Community Bank was singing a similar tune.
“A strength of our bank has been and continues to be the value of our deposit franchise,” CEO Michael Crapps said earlier this month, pointing to a nearly $35 million influx.
“Notably, while the banking industry experienced some turmoil in March ... we actually saw some nice deposit growth,” he added.
Other community banks around the state that reported gains included First Reliance of Florence, up $38 million, Myrtle Beach’s Coastal Carolina National, up $25 million, and Walhalla-based Community First, up $13 million.
“We continue to experience solid growth metrics as we successfully navigate the current volatility in the overall banking industry,” Coastal Carolina National CEO Laurence Bolchoz said.
Lenders across South Carolina and the rest of the country were awash in cash during the Covid-19 crisis, as consumers and businesses socked away government aid money into savings and checking accounts. As of last July 1, the 76 banks with offices in the state reported $128 billion in deposits, up 9 percent from a year earlier, according to the latest government figures.
It wasn’t long ago that those funds weren’t earning much. Banks for years were able to pay miserly interest rates to their depositors, typically less than 1 percent, reflecting the Federal Reserve’s long campaign to keep borrowing costs low.
The calculus has changed, driven by the sudden burst of inflation.
The Fed got the ball rolling more than a year ago. It has cranked up its benchmark borrowing rate nine times since March 2022, taking it from nearly zero to roughly 5 percent, in an effort to cool the economy down. Meanwhile, savers have had to dip into their accounts to help pay for higher-priced goods.
Most lenders are now offering higher returns to attract and retain yield-chasing depositors — and it’s starting to pinch the bottom line.
United Community, the largest bank headquartered in South Carolina, noted that its “net interest margin” — the difference between what it takes in from borrowers and pays out in interest — contracted 3.6 percent last quarter from the end of 2022 “due to increased deposit costs,” according to CEO Lynn Harton.
Similarly, Southern First reported a decline in that key metric, saying it was driven by an “increase in interest expense on our deposit accounts related to the Federal Reserve’s ... interest rate hikes during the past 12 months.”
It was much the same at South Atlantic and First Community.
In Charleston, the Bank of South Carolina said it missed its profitability target for the first quarter, even though its earnings rose almost 9 percent from a year earlier.
“This outcome is the result of precipitous increases in our deposit costs to meet the intense competition amongst banks, brokerages and the U.S. Treasury,” CEO Fleetwood Hassell said in a written statement. “Although loan interest income has increased, our margins remain thin.”
He added that the prospects for more increases by the Fed “is uncertain.”
The short-term answer will come Wednesday, when the central bank wraps up its next policy meeting. It’s widely expected to bump up rates another notch.
