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.

Tree Trimming in Mount Pleasant

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

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.

Stump Removal in Mount Pleasant

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.

Reduce Headaches

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.

Mount Pleasant Trader Joe’s beer and wine permit suspended after third underage violation

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Loyal Trader Joe’s customers will soon be able to buy their “two-buck chuck” again after the Mount Pleasant store had its beer and wine permit suspended.

Sales were “off the table” for the last ten days following a ruling from a South Carolina administrative court.

The suspension began on January 2 stemming from an undercover SLED operation from nearly two years ago.

The agency reported that during a 40 store sting in February 2020, a clerk at the Trader Joe’s store sold a 6-pack of beer to a 19-year-old who was working with them.

That was the store’s third offense in three years.

According to court documents, the first was in November 2017 where the grocery store chain paid a $500 fine. The second, in March 2018, resulted in a $1,000 fine.

The South Carolina Department of Revenue, which issues alcohol and beverage licenses, has a procedure for each consecutive violation in selling alcohol to an underage customer.

In this case, the DOR made a final determination in February 2021 and imposed a 45-day suspension.

But the store challenged that.

Based on the estimates provided by the store manager, 12 to 13% of the store’s sales are alcohol and it is considered to have the highest volume of alcohol sales for the chain in the region

A suspension of 45 days would cost the store an estimated $750,000.

A regional vice president testified this would cause a decline in customer satisfaction and possibly lead to hours cut for employees due to the loss in revenue.

However, the DOR allows for “mitigating factors” to reduce penalties.

These include documented training for employees, internal checks and automated age verification programs (i.e. register system requires manual input of birth date before sale can be completed).

Judge Shirley Robinson, citing these mitigating factors present at Trader Joe’s store 752 and its good standing in the community, ordered the store to pay a $3,000 fine and institute a 10 day suspension instead of the 45 days.

The suspension also could not take place during the holiday season between November 19, 2021 and January 2, 2022.

The store can begin selling beer and wine again on Wednesday, January 12.

If there is a fourth violation within three years, the DOR could fully revoke the store’s permit, according to its penalty guidelines for ABL violations.

Mount Pleasant resident, ex-Boeing manager pleads guilty to PPP loan fraud

A former systems manager at Boeing Co. is pleading guilty to defrauding the government out of more than $122,000 from a federal loan program created to save jobs during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Attorney’s office said Suzanne Weintraub and unidentified associates “both known and unknown” illegally obtained the Payroll Protection Program money through a “defunct” retail bakery.

The scheme started in April 2020, according to prosecutors. The U.S. Small Business Administration approved the forgivable $122,445 loan about two months later to a sole proprietorship called Sunny Bee Cookies LLC, which listed the same address as a home Weintraub owns in the RiverTowne neighborhood off S.C. Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant.

The emergency funding was requested to help meet payroll for six jobs, according to a database of the federal loans. The funds were transferred electronically to an account in South Carolina from an out-of-state bank.

The government said Weintraub included bogus tax and payroll documents in the bakery’s application to the SBA.

She was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She faces up to five years in prison, three years in a supervised release program and a fine of $250,000.

Weintraub was not formally indicted. Interim U.S. Attorney Corey Ellis charged her in a Jan. 12 court filing known as an information. By then, she already had signed a plea agreement. Her defense attorney did not respond to a request for comment.

Weintraub is required to cooperate with investigators and forfeit any money, property or other assets she received from her role in the conspiracy. Prosecutors are seeking to recoup a minimum of about $37,000 from her.

No hearings have been scheduled in the case.

According to Weintraub’s LinkedIn profile, she started working for Boeing in North Charleston in 2015 as an information technology project manager and became a business systems manager in 2018. The planemaker said in a Jan. 13 statement that she’s no longer employed with the company.

The government appears to be taking a hard stance on crimes involving funds from the national COVID-19 economic relief program known as the CARES Act. The U.S. Attorney’s office announced Thursday that a Blythewood woman was sentenced to two years in prison after she pleaded guilty to obtaining more than $1.2 million in loans by submitting fraudulent documents.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The town of Mount Pleasant wants your input on plans for a new multi-use path between Mathis Ferry Road and Long Point Road.

The path is planned for Whipple Road, stretching just over a mile. It’s part of the Mount Pleasant Way project and would run behind the existing sidewalk.

The project team wants to know which alignment of the path you prefer and what features you’d like to see along the trail.

Operations Division Chief James Aton says the goal of the Whipple Road trails is to bring more connectivity between destinations like Lucy Beckham High School, the town’s tennis facility, Seacoast Church, and adjacent neighborhoods that sit Whipple Road.

Through an online survey and an in-person public meeting on Thursday, Aton says you’ll see three different proposed crosswalks for Whipple Road. You can vote on your preferred option.

You’ll also be asked to rank the amenities you would like to see along the 10 to 12-foot path. These include benches, dog stations, historical markers, workout areas, and a community garden.

“This is really a flagship project for the town, Mount Pleasant Way in this segment in particular,” Aton said. “So, we want to make sure that there’s community buy-in and that’s vested moving forward for other segments as we pursue those as funding becomes available.”

He says concrete and asphalt are the two preferred surfaces for the path. He says concrete is cheaper and less impactful, so that’s what they prefer, but they are open to other recommendations.

Aton says a potential 13-acre park could eventually be built to connect to the trail as well. Those plans are still in the early stages.

Aton says the online survey for the new Whipple Trails is already live on their website.

Thursday night from 5 to 7 p.m. there’s a public meeting to view these plans and ask questions in person. It’s happening at the Jones Center on Egypt Road.

If you can’t make it in person, the online survey is open until January 28. Aton says that’s the deadline for the town to submit its application for Greenbelt funding.

He adds that the town hopes new infrastructure grant programs can help fund the project in addition to Greenbelt Funds.

Aton expects this to be an 18-to-24-month project.

Lowcountry school district officials react schools moving to virtual learning

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Dorchester District 4 and the Colleton County School District are moving to virtual learning because of a rise in COVID-19 cases among staff and students in the districts.DD4 and Colleton County each made the decision in the last 24 hours.

District officials at both Colleton and DD4 say the move to virtual learning had to happen due to the increased spread of COVID-19 among both students and staff. Making it nearly impossible to operate their districts in-person.

“We were all unprepared for the spread of the virus, no one expected omicron to raise it’s ugly head,” says Dr. Valerie Cave, Superintendent of the Colleton County School District.

The omicron variant is hitting Lowcountry schools hard making it difficult to keep buildings open for students and staff.

“From Friday to Monday our numbers nearly doubled in the majority of our buildings, that same trend held from Monday to Tuesday with our numbers nearly doubling again,” says Monica Tudder, Director of Exceptional Children at DD4.

District leaders say roughly 20% of the DD4 students are either COVID-19 positive or in quarantine with a number of staff members also out of the classroom.

“But keeping obviously teachers in the building, keeping nurses in the building because they are getting COVID-19, it is very difficult,” says Tudder.

It’s a similar story for Colleton County, Dr. Cave says roughly an eighth of the district’s staff members are out while more than 700 students are in quarantine.

“The spread was going at a rampant pace within our schools and when you can’t provide instruction you need to make those decisions,” says Dr. Cave.

“It’s something district staff knows is an inconvenience and concern for parents of district students. The Colleton County School District plans to continue strict dis-infecting protocols and will bring back desk shields in an effort after the break to keep students and staff healthy.

“Our teachers are going to be in constant communication with those students, we’re going to record our lessons and upload those to google classrooms,” says Dr. Cave.

Charleston County School District parents have raised concerns over the accuracy of the district’s COVID-19 dashboard. The district says due to an “extreme” rise in COVID-19 cases, they are experiencing delays in updating the dashboard. The updates are done twice a day Monday through Friday.

In Berkeley County, the decision to transition to virtual learning is made on a school by school basis. District officials say they have no plans to transition to virtual learning at this point.

School leaders say they are working through the challenges while ensuring the level of education remains top of the line for students.

“We’ve done everything possible to make sure our children get quality instruction,” says Dr. Cave.

Georgetown County School District has decided to move Georgetown Middle School to virtual learning starting on Thursday and will return to in-person learning on Monday January 24th.

Colleton County plans to bring students back to in-person learning on January 19th while DD4 will bring back student on January 20th. District officials for both schools say they will continue to monitor infection rates.
