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.

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:

Tree Trimming in Mount Pleasant

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 Mount Pleasant 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

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 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

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.

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- Professional tennis player Mia Horvit didn’t always want to play her sport.

“I got made fun of because my tennis outfit was too girly. I was like ‘Mom sign me up for something else,'” said Horvit.

But, that’s changed now.

“I fell in love with the game and I’ve been playing for 15 years now,” said Horvit.

After her time on the court as a junior and collegiate athlete, Mia has plenty of experience and trophies.

These days, she’s chasing the biggest prizes on the planet on the Women’s Tennis Association Tour. Through winning smaller competitions Horvit earns points to build her resume and make it to tournaments like the U.S. Open.

“Not only are you playing to do well and win, but there’s the money behind it. There’s the rankings, there’s expectations to yourself, to your coaches, to your family,” said Horvit.

While her game is getting recognized inside the lines, it’s what she does outside of them that sets her apart.

She’s competing for Miss South Carolina as Miss Mount Pleasant in 2023.

“I’m learning as I go what I’m doing in these grey areas that I’m not used to being in,” said Horvit.

Another side hustle is spending time on the sets of movies and television shows.

“I’ve been a background extra in Outer Banks. That will come out in February. I’m also in HBO’s Righteous Gemstones,” said Horvit “I was in Manhunt. That will be on Apple TV. Then I was in a movie called Suncoast.”

Her reason for having multiple careers is to set an example.

“I want to break the stigma of being more than an athlete,” said Horvit. “I think being able to open those doors gets you to see what else is out there.”

Her goals, if accomplished, aren’t just going to break the stigma, but shatter it.

“Top 50 in the world for singles and top 50 in the world for doubles. Playing a bigger role in a movie or a TV show that would be fantastic. Winning Miss South Carolina and to compete in the Miss USA Pageant,” said Horvit

Matt and Mandy McFarland had previously been a part of School of Rock in Indiana before deciding to open in Mount Pleasant, according to a news release.

"Our family is completely committed to School of Rock because of its mission; a passionate community dedicated to enriching lives through performance-based music education,” said Matt McFarland. “We teach students how to rock on stage and in life. We enjoy helping students break out of their shells and become more confident in their skin. School of Rock is more than just a music school; it is a place to call home.”

Mt. Pleasant firefighter scales USS Yorktown to propose to girlfriend

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — The season of joy and celebration is taking on new meaning for one Mount Pleasant firefighter.

Nick Putskey proposed to his girlfriend, Katey Young, a teacher at Westview Primary Elementary, Thursday afternoon surrounded by family and friends atop the USS Yorktown.

“We’ve been on the same page since day one,” Young said when asked about meeting Putskey. “It’s the true fairytale.”

The proposal was somewhat of a fairytale, as well.

“My battalion chief was actually the masterplan of the whole idea,” Putskey said. “He said, ‘what do you have as an idea as far as an engagement?’ He was just like, ‘well, hear me out, see if you like this’ and I was like ‘yeah, that sounds awesome.’”

The plan was to scale the USS Yorktown, a nod to Putskey’s time spent in the Navy, as well as both of Young’s grandfathers.

The perfect front? Claim it as fire station training.

“We had ‘high-rise training,’ if you will,” Putskey said. “So that’s where climbing the ladder came into play.”

Young’s family was also in on the plan.

“It was actually under the guise as Santa for all of the grandkids,” Young explained. “We were going to take a picture with Santa. He was supposed to be flying in on the Yorktown.”

There was no Saint Nick in sight, but Nick Putskey had the ultimate present in hand.

“I was clueless until he got down on one knee and I was like, ‘what are you doing?’” Young said. “I did say yes, it just took a second because I was like, ‘I thought Santa was supposed to be here, and he was like ‘no!’”

Putskey and Young admit emotions were high, and for Putskey, there were plenty of nerves.

“I’m afraid of heights, so climbing a ladder was not fun,” Putskey said. “My foot actually slipped though the ladder because I was just getting so nervous.”

But the mission was a success.

“It couldn’t have gone any better,” Young said. “It was a really special moment, for sure.”

Putskey said it was a moment made possible by the bond of brotherhood.

“They were exactly how I wanted them to be,” Putskey said. “They were just like my extended family and I’m really grateful for that. It is truly the brotherhood of the fire service.”

Mount Pleasant Town Council considers addition of citizen-run green commission

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Protecting the environment can be challenging, but a Mount Pleasant Town Council member says it continues to be a priority."I know some of us are more vocal about wanting to protect what we look like and how much green space, how much we are protecting wildlife and environment, and thinking about where this water is going to go," said Brenda Corley, a Mount Pleasant Town Council member.On Tuesday,...

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Protecting the environment can be challenging, but a Mount Pleasant Town Council member says it continues to be a priority.

"I know some of us are more vocal about wanting to protect what we look like and how much green space, how much we are protecting wildlife and environment, and thinking about where this water is going to go," said Brenda Corley, a Mount Pleasant Town Council member.

On Tuesday, Jan. 10, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie and town council met to talk about many agenda items. One of those included the idea of a citizen-run green commission.

"I'm super excited that the mayor and his flood resilience came up with this idea and brought it to the council, but we want to make sure that we are ensuring that we continue to be value added, because we have so many great things already here in Mount Pleasant for the environment," said John Iacofano, another Mount Pleasant Town Council member.

The commission would include nine citizens chosen by the committee. Councilman Iacofano says he is 100 percent behind protecting the environment, but he wants to make sure adding the commission makes sense for the town.

"We have the flood resilience committee, we have the planning committee; these things kind of overlap, so we want to ensure that we are creating the best citizen input possible and the culture to cultivate that," continued Iacofano.

Others look at it as a space to give the people of Mount Pleasant a voice.

"Us tree-huggers aren't that organized, and I think those residents need a voice and they don't have one group right now who is advocating for us, for wildlife, and for nature, and for conserving," said Corley.

Preservation is timely topic after the controversial removal of a raptor nest from a cell tower near Rifle Range Road on Thursday.

Overall, the commission's objective would be simple: to keep Mount Pleasant beautiful.

Next steps include going back to committee and discussing it again next month. The council will then vote on it, and the public will be asked to submit their resumes to be considered for the commission.

Restaurant owners emphasize importance of Charleston Restaurant Week

Mount Pleasant, S.C. (WCIV) — The week for the Lowcountry foodies is finally here.

Today marks the start of Charleston Restaurant Week. The decades long event hosted in the Tri-county area offers discounted prices to encourage people to come to support the Lowcountry's culinary industry during the slow season.

Owners say the event could help kick off the new year for many restaurants struggling.

The 10-day event is from Thursday to ends Sunday, January 22nd. More than 50 restaurants from downtown Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant are participating in the culinary event.

One participant is Hall’s Chophouse. The steak house has participated in the event for a decade, and the owner says this week was crucial to keeping the doors open in the early 2010s, turning his restaurant into one of the premier steak houses in the area.

So Tommy Hall says he knows firsthand how the week can make a huge impact on some restaurants, especially those recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Typically, this January is a quiet time of year. The holidays ended, people are getting back to the routines of their life of school, their job, and the restaurants suffer. It's a hard time. So, restaurant week was there to spike the economic growth in January. It just, it's amazing what it does,” Hall said.

According to a survey by Charleston Food and Wine, restaurants in the Lowcountry saw a 42 percent decrease in revenue during the pandemic.

Take Ty’s Roadside Coastal Kitchen in Mount Pleasant. The owner, Ty Neal, has been in the restaurant industry for decades. But when he opened his restaurant in mount pleasant two years ago, in the middle of the pandemic, he even admits it was one of the biggest struggles of his career.

However, Neal says restaurant week helped give him a boost during times when customer flow was slow. Now the restaurant is one of the up-and-coming foodie destinations in Mount Pleasant, gaining attention for its open kitchen setup and hearty American cuisine.

Neal's restaurant is one of five in Mount Pleasant offering discounted three-course meals.

While Neal says tourism season was great for his staff, it’s events like restaurant week that gave him the boost he needed to keep the momentum going now.

“Make no mistake, it's a tough time for restaurants. Staffing is tough, and costs are up, so those challenges are many. But we love what we do. And so, we talk every day about beating the odds and building our fan base, and you know trying to stay viable as an inch as an industry,” Neal said.

Ty’s roadside Coastal Kitchen is offering a deal of three courses for $32 during restaurant week.
