Tree Trimming in Mount Pleasant
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 Mount Pleasant
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 Mount Pleasant
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 Mount Pleasant
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?

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County Council has proposed amendment changes to the tree protection and preservation ordinance, but some members of the community disagree with this decision and are fighting back.
The amendment changes would originally exempt county-led projects from needing authorization from the Board of Zoning Appeals before cutting trees. Currently, all requests to remove protected trees must be reviewed and approved by the BZA.
The proposed changes were sent to the Planning Commission on Oct. 9 for review, but the commission voted unanimously to deny the changes. County Council met again Nov. 14 to further discuss the proposed changes. At this meeting, the public came out to defend the trees. The County received 134 letters written in opposition of the changes and 25 people in attendance to the meeting also spoke out against it. To address community concerns, the Council elected to revise these changes.
County Council revised the amendment changes on Nov. 30. They added tree mitigation and limited site plan review; however, members of the Coastal Conservation League are still not satisfied. They say that while they appreciate the Council taking time to consider the community’s concerns, they do not believe that these revisions are enough.
“We just do not feel that the tree mitigation they’re adding back in goes far enough,” Emma Berry, Communities and Transportation Project Manager for the Coastal Conservation League, said. The tree fund that they would have to pay into is just for the beautification of Charleston in general, but it does not address the significant loss of these grand trees along these roads, which is what we’re really concerned about.”
Berry says that they do not feel that these proposals are fair.
“The amendments do not address our concerns about the removal of independent oversight. It still puts all of the deciding power on these grand tree removals in the hands of county council, which we just do not feel is the right way to run things in our government. It feels very undemocratic, I would say, to do that,” Berry said. “If the BZA is not the appropriate board to be making these decisions on grand tree removals and we would propose adding a new one such as, like a tree protection board.”
A tree protection board is one of the solutions Berry and the Coastal Conservation League have proposed to make the amendment changes better meet their concerns.
“The Tree Protection Board is something that we would love to see in Charleston County. There has been some conversation about how Dorchester County and Berkeley County let their public works have exemptions, but we don’t want to weaken our tree protection ordinance. We want to strengthen it further. By adding a Tree Protection Board we think that’s a really great solution to that problem,” Berry said. “Another solution we have is with the tree mitigation that they’re proposing - that instead of paying into a tree fund that could just plant a sapling in any part of Charleston County, they would have to directly plant trees alongside the roads that they’re working on. So, if they’re cutting down a grand tree on the side of a road, rather than putting money into a tree fund, they would plant a new tree further along that road. By doing that they would successfully replace the tree canopy in the specific area where it’s lost and that’s what’s really crucial from an environmental and just a resilient standpoint.”
According to the Coastal Conservation League, the Charleston area has lost more than 10,000 acres of tree coverage since 1992. The Coastal Conservation League believes that approving these amendment changes could lead to the loss of hundreds of more grand trees all across Charleston County.
Berry says that some of these trees have been around since before Charleston was established so they have a lot of historical and cultural significance, but the trees also provide many environmental benefits to the area.
The Coastal Conservation League says that these grand trees provide resilience to issues like flooding, climate change, increased urban development and erosion. Trees also offset carbon emissions and provide humans and animals with clean air. The Coastal Conservation League says that the tree-lined roads are one of the elements that make the Lowcountry so special. Berry says keeping these trees is crucial.
Berry says they do not understand why these amendment changes are coming up so suddenly in the first place.
“The question we’ve all been kind of chewing on in the past couple months is ‘why now?’ And that’s a really great point. Because I would say that, from the presentations Public Works has given, they - I think - have maybe gone before the Board of Zoning Appeals five times in the past 10 years for tree removal authorization,” Berry said. “And they are never denied. If anything, they’re given some recommendations of other things they need to do, in addition to the tree removal,” Berry says, “So, with that being said, it doesn’t seem like it’s a really pertinent issue. So, it makes you wonder what is the reason and we think it’s some really big road projects that are coming up in our near future.”
Berry says that there are a few members of the City Council who are on their side and are trying to placate the community by proposing some alternative amendments. The Planning Commission was set to review the revised amendment changes at the Monday meeting; however, it has since been removed from the agenda.
Berry says that they fully support and stand with the Public Commission’s decision to deny the initial proposals and hope that the revised ones get denied as well.
“I think we are hoping the planning commission will stay strong and see it the way that everyone else seems to see it, which is that these amendments that they are proposing - the revised ones - do not go remotely far enough in answering all of our concerns about these amendments,” Berry said. “This fight is not over yet. We are still working tirelessly to not grant public works this exemption.”
You can find the revised amendment changes on page 15 of the agenda.

Mount Pleasant unveils 9/11 monument, bringing a piece of New York to South Carolina

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — In an emotional dedication ceremony Friday at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, first responders and community members came together to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
One of those in attendance was Chevalo Wilsondebriano, a retired New York City Fire Department, who was working when the call came in.
“I was working at my station with the New York City Fire Department that’s Battalion 50 out in Queens," Wilsondebriano said. "And a call came over for an explosion at the World Trade Center. I didn't know what it was, but I had to start responding in this big disaster ambulance."
Mount Pleasant unveils 9/11 monument, bringing a piece of New York to South Carolina (WCIV)
They are retelling memories of 9/11.
“I looked up, and the tower was twisting and then coming down, and I had to just turn around and start running for my life like everyone else,” Wilsondebriano said.
Twenty-two years later, a new monument brought a piece of New York to South Carolina by way of Town of Mount Pleasant Councilmember Gary Santos.
“I asked the fire chief up in New York if he would send me a piece of the eye beam from the World Trade Center," Santos said. "He obliged me, and he sent it to me. It's been a long time coming."
Santos said it took over a year to raise money to build this memorial. But it was a project he was determined to complete.
“This was the best way I thought that we could honor it for these firefighters and first responders and people who put their life on the line every day for us," Santos said. "So hopefully when people come by, and they get, and they see this, they remember."
And for first responders who were at the scene, the emotions ran high.
BE THE FIRST TO COMMENT
“It almost brings tears to my eyes,” Wilsondebriano said. “It means so much to myself as a first responder that day. And for so many first responders, all around the country, and especially from New York, it means everything that people here, all the way in Charleston, will remember."
Charleston gym plans to build in Mount Pleasant; Publix relocation plans up for review

A Charleston workout site owner who transformed an old warehouse into a gym is now eyeing East Cooper for a new ground-up fitness center.
Ethos Athletic Club wants to build a two-story, 20,065-square-foot facility at the juncture of Hungryneck Boulevard and Midtown Avenue in Mount Pleasant.
Ethos, founded by workout enthusiast, Charleston native and Citadel graduate Joey Welling, opened its first location in 21,000 square feet on Huger Street beside High Wire Distilling in 2021. That space had previously operated as a storage site for an events company and decades ago as a backup warehouse for the long-gone Sears department store.
The proposed Mount Pleasant location will be new construction. The town’s Design Review Board will consider preliminary approval of the site, landscape and architecture on Dec. 6.
Plans to relocate a Charleston grocery store are moving forward with new design plans presented to the city.
Eighteen months after the property owner first indicated the planned relocation of Publix supermarket in Ashley Landing Shopping Center, the city’s Design Review Board is set to review the proposed project Dec. 4.
Charlotte-based retail center owner Faison wants to move the grocer from an existing 48,391-square-foot free-standing structure between Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and Old Towne Road to a 48,387-square-foot store connected to the east side of the main shopping center.
To make that happen, Faison wants to demolish 130,180 square feet on the retail destination’s east side where Dollar Tree and Big Lots are located and tear down a 12,820-square-foot structure on the back side of the shopping center.
The demolished portions will make room for the grocery store, a 14,170-square-foot retail tenant and space behind the supermarket as a turnaround area for delivery trucks.

Dollar Tree’s lease extends through mid-2024 and Big Lots is leasing month to month, according to Kris Fetter, president and CEO of Faison.
The planned retail portion of the building next to the proposed relocated Publix is not being marketed until Faison’s plan works its way through the city’s review process, Fetter said.
The future of the existing Publix site hasn’t been determined. Apartments were planned on the site at one time, but the proposal received a cool reception from West Ashley residents.
Fetter said the company is willing to work with the city on a collaborative approach to redeveloping the property, including making the site more user-friendly for bicyclists and pedestrians.
A new three-story building over parking is in the works for Daniel Island.
The proposed 17,865-square-foot structure on three levels above almost 6,000 square feet of parking is planned for 211 Seven Farms Drive.
The building will include space for three retail shops on the first floor and two residential units each on the top two levels. Sixteen parking spaces are proposed.
The property is owned by SLS Development LLC, which paid $680,000 for the 0.34-acre site in August, according to Berkeley County land records.

Tell me about your professional background and how you feel it makes you a good fit to be a council member.
I’ve been teaching in Charleston County since 2016. This is my 24th year teaching. The local aspect of teaching, most of my career has been in teaching elementary school, but still the local aspect of working in the community where I live has always been something that I really like. Now I’m in North Charleston, so it’s the greater community where I live. I think this is a theme of why I’ve chosen to run for Town Council because I would like to see Mount Pleasant make its own decisions on a local level and be responsible for them and with citizens participating in the process. I lived in France for seven years and I have a Bachelor of Science in French and psychology and a master’s degree in educational technology. I’ve just always been part of the local community and have worked well with others.
What do you feel is the biggest issue facing the town today, and what plans do you have to address this?
I have a daughter, a six-year-old, and we went to James Island yesterday to go rock climbing in James Island County Park. I would like to see the green spaces improved in Mount Pleasant to make it something where travelers don’t have to go across town to go to the (County) Park. I know that there’s a bike path in … Laurel Hill County Park and just a dirt road going in a half-mile circle and there are things that we can put back there that would be places you can take your kids and take your family.
The other thing is I think that health all across the United States is a problem. We pay more for healthcare. We have more healthcare issues related to obesity and diet. I would like to be somebody who spreads the message of healthy eating and healthy lifestyles lead to better lives. We have a great little local market there at Boone Hall...we have the Farmers Market on Tuesday and Boone Hall is open the rest of the week.
The results of the Public Input Matters survey found that throughout all seven districts in town, respondents feel that traffic in Mount Pleasant needs to be improved. What are some concrete solutions that you feel can address this?
The traffic in Mount Pleasant and housing in Mount Pleasant — I don’t know if ‘victims of our own success’ is the right word for it. We have a very unique geography here. We are a virtual island in that there’s no shortcuts. There’s one way in and one way out. You may come across I-526 or I-26 or you go north towards McClellanville and Georgetown up (Highway) 41. There just isn’t room.
I know that the Town Council has a plan and they’ve already hired a company to look into certain traffic solutions. As a new council member, I’m not sure if I would be able to offer anything different to what they have already decided on.
Another area Public Input Matters survey takers responded to was housing availability. Forty-one percent of respondents felt that affordable housing options should be increased. How do you feel this can be accomplished?
I think it speaks well to the people in Mount Pleasant that we want things for people like affordable housing, but whether or not there is a feasible solution to providing that affordable housing — where are we going to put affordable housing? It makes sense that people want affordable housing but do they want the affordable housing in their backyard?
I want to live locally, I want to buy locally, want to shop locally, but we can’t escape the fact that a lot of our local decisions are made on a state and national and global level. How does Mount Pleasant make affordable housing when the interest rates are 7.75 percent? There are things happening on a national level that we just can’t control that can make our job of creating affordable housing next to impossible.
Is there anyone who has served as a role model to you, either from politics, past experiences or family members, that you look to and consider while you run for office?
One thing my dad always taught us was sometimes doing the right thing is the hardest thing to do, but you can take solace in the fact that it’s the right thing to do. I am a part owner of a restaurant in Washington, D.C. with my brother Eric and when Washington D.C. decided to impose the vaccine mandate on restaurants … we were the only restaurant in Washington, D.C. to actively say no, we’re not going to check people’s health papers. It was very hard on my brother to do that, and he’s such a big part of the local community. What I just really admired was his courage and even though it financially wasn’t the best decision. Financially, it wasn’t a great decision, but it was the right decision to make and his principles are something that I truly admire and I try to follow that example in my own life.

Graze Craze, a new charcuterie concept known for crafting grazing boards and boxes, has opened its first South Carolina location at 3373 South Morgans Point Road in Mount Pleasant.
The new storefront is located in the National Crossing shopping center at the main entrance of the Charleston National neighborhood, according to a news release. Graze Craze is a part of Big Flavor Brands, the food service division of Starpoint Brands, a family of companies affiliated with United Franchise Group.
At Graze Craze, charcuterie experts, known as grazologists, design arrangements that feature an array of ingredients that are ideal for grazing, like fresh fruits and vegetables, premium meats and cheeses, artisanal sweets, nuts and more, the release stated.
The Mount Pleasant Graze Craze is the only one of its kind in the Charleston area, and the franchise owners behind the new store Keith and Kendra Lovas are thrilled to share something completely new with the community they call home, the release stated.

“The wonderful people of Mount Pleasant love to gather and celebrate,” said Keith Lovas in the release. “There is no better centerpiece for a special occasion than a Graze Craze charcuterie board — it’s unmatched in quality, beauty and functionality.”
The Lovas enjoy playing a role in their community with Kendra working at a local elementary school and Keith coaching youth sports teams through the Mount Pleasant Recreation Department, according to the release. In addition to serving exceptional grazing boards, the Lovas plan to use their Graze Craze to expand their local involvement and sponsor sports teams, further supporting kids in being active and chasing their dreams. The Lovas are also interested in bolstering regional business development through their involvement with the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce.
Graze Craze charcuterie arrangements incorporate an assortment of flavors, like the popular Gone Grazey board, balanced to provide a bit of everything – a mix of cured meats, premium cheeses, crackers, fresh produce, nuts and more. The Vegegrazian is designed with a medley of fresh fruits and vegetables for anyone embracing a plant-based lifestyle.
The artisan-inspired charcuterie offerings at Graze Craze are available in different size options, from Char-Cutie-Cups and Picnic Boxes for nibbling to sharing-size boards with enough fresh food to feed a large party, the release stated.
