Tree Trimming in Nexton
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 Nexton
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 Nexton
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 Nexton
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.

SUMMERVILLE — A Charlotte-based developer recently paid just over $12 million for nearly 24 acres in Nexton where a new mixed-use, grocery-anchored development will be built.
Crosland Southeast plans to build a Publix supermarket and 351 apartments on the western side of Nexton Parkway where Brighton Park Boulevard now deadends. The property is currently undeveloped without any streets.
The site, called One Nexton, is directly across the road from a planned Harris Teeter supermarket and is less than a mile from Interstate 26.
The sales agreement calls for at least 54,000 square feet of retail construction to begin by March 22, 2023, with two more phases and an additional 31,000 square feet of commercial development by one year later.
Publix announced in December it has leased property for the new store, but the Florida-based grocer did not say when construction will begin or how large the store will be.
If the developer fails to start construction by the start date, the deed allows Nexton developer Brookfield Residential to repurchase the property at the original sales price.
Construction on the multifamily development is expected to start by late summer, with an opening in 2024.
Future phases will include a hotel, office space, additional retail and more apartments, according to a statement. In all, another 65,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space will be added.
Plans also call for an office core to be developed around Nexton One in about five to seven years.
The new project is part of Nexton’s effort to provide housing, services and job opportunities within the community to allow residents to live, work, play and shop without long commutes, according to Brent Gibadlo, vice president and general manager of Nexton.
“One Nexton will create more employment and business development opportunities for Nexton while also providing meaningful spaces where people can connect and be active,” said Peter Pappas, managing partner with Crosland Southeast.
After Nexton One is completed, it will be connected to a network of parks and trails throughout the 5,000-acre Nexton development where as many as 7,500 homes will one day be built about 25 miles from downtown Charleston.
At the end of 2021, the developing community mostly in unincorporated Berkeley County had 1,675 occupied homes and another 250 sold and under construction, according to Nexton spokeswoman Cassie Cataline.
At full buildout, Nexton could be home to 18,750 residents, larger than the current combined populations of Moncks Corner and Hollywood.
Just west of Nexton near the Nexton Parkway interchange at I-26 sits about 1,000 acres annexed by the town of Summerville in 2020. The tract almost abuts the One Nexton site.
It’s approved for up to 700 homes, and plans for the first 177 along Linda Way near Drop Off Drive have been presented to the town. Drop Off Drive is a frontage road between Nexton Parkway and Jedburg Road along the northern side of I-26.

Brookfield Residential to acquire Nexton developers

Newland, the developers behind the master-planned Summerville community, are being acquired by Brookfield Residential, a company headquarterd in Calgary, Canada. The acquisition won’t affect any current plans, including the groundbreaking of Downtown Nexton.
By Teri Errico Griffis
Along with the acquisition of the management company on June 1, Brookfield Residential is also acquiring the 5% general partner’s equity interest in 15 of the 20 master-planned communities that Newland is currently developing. Brookfield is headquartered with corporate offices in Calgary, Canada.
Brookfield Residential’s Managing Partner, Real Estate and President, Development Adrian Foley said the investment allows the company to expand as a “large-scale provider of lofts to third-party builders” and potentially expand the Brookfield Residential homebuilding brand.
“The acquisition of Newland adds phenomenal master-planned communities to our portfolio in exciting new markets that are experiencing tremendous growth and a lack of supply of new homes,” Foley said. “It will round out our existing development capabilities making us one of the few companies that has the breadth of resources, capital and operational talent to successfully scale in this area of the market.”
The company said the acquisition broadens’ Brookfield Residential’s footprint across the country and leverages Brookfield Properties’ development capabilities into new markets, including Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle-Tacoma, Portland, Raleigh-Durham and Wilmington, in addition to Summerville.
Newland is U.S. real estate land development company with 50 years’ experience in real estate developments.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to team up with Brookfield Properties’ development group,” Newland Executive Chairman Bob McLeod said. “This acquisition will provide more opportunities for the continued development of additional mixed-use masterplans well into the future as well as give us significant additional vertical development opportunities. We are looking forward to becoming part of the Brookfield team.”
A spokesperson for Nexton said the acquisition won’t affect any of the current developments, including the $300 million groundbreaking of downtown Nexton.
The urban-inspired mixed-use development will be situated on nearly 100 acres between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park Boulevard, a Nexton release said. Plans include retail, dining, hospitality, residential, service, office and commercial options within walking distance of Nexton’s residential neighborhoods.
In total, 110,000 square feet of office space will be available for lease.
Construction on Downtown Nexton will occur in phases throughout the next few years with the first stage including multifamily units and a mixed-use building that has ground-level retail beneath loft apartments.
The project is developed by New Jersey-based Sharbell Development Corp., a mixed-use developer with more than 37 years experience in the industry.
MUSC to build hospital in Nexton

The master-planned Nexton community will soon become a medical destination for Berkeley County.
Medical University of South Carolina has proposed a $130 million hospital within the Summerville community. The 128-patient bed facility will include four operating rooms, eight labor and delivery rooms, diagnostic testing and imaging, and emergency services, MUSC Health Chief Strategy Officer Sarah Bacik said.
“A large percentage of our current patients originate from Berkeley County, and this is going to really allow our patients to have access within our communities,” Bacik said. “It’s not a surprise to anyone that the growth has outpaced some of the infrastructure.”
MUSC has asked the state for approval to build the community hospital through a certificate of need.
The build is expected to take two and a half years.
Nexton’s Vice President of Operations Brent Gibadlo said a hospital offers a service to the surrounding areas and residents because health care options have become a growing priority for homebuyers.
“There are certain basic things that are important for everyone that don’t change,” he said. “Certainly good schools if people have children and then good health care options. So having a world-class hospital in close proximity is always a wonderful compliment to a community."
Downtown Charleston’s MUSC campus will remain the hub for the educational hospital, while the Nexton campus will book end it with satellite campuses and ambulatory services in between, Bacik said.
“We’re full downtown, and we need to make sure that we can continue to have access to those more acute patients,” Bacik said. “It’s really about getting the patients the right level of care at the right place.”
The need for a community hospital in Berkeley County is critical, said Dr. Dave Zaas, CEO of the Charleston division of MUSC. The hospital’s co-location in Nexton will help with the area’s continued growth.
“That is a lot of our strategy not just in tri-county but around the state,” he said. “Not only delivering the highest quality ... but more convenient and ideally at a lower cost. I think that drives our ambulatory growth as well as our statewide strategy.”
Gibadlo said Nexton is just starting to explore the possibilities with MUSC and its idea of community health care, of being more proactive and going out into the community to initiate health and wellness programs. Preventative care could then decrease the need for hospital visits.
“We’ve had conversations with MUSC on how to incorporate some of those programs into Nexton,” Gibadlo said. “That’s everything from community gardens to community fitness programs to even potential opportunities for some of the coordination between MUSC and some of the companies at Nexton.”
Other suggestions include incorporating companies’ health care programs through MUSC and creating wellness programs employees can participate in.
Bacik is already excited for both caregivers and patients because she believes the best care is delivered conveniently to patients, many of whom come from across the state.
“A lot of our patients and staff travel to the peninsula today to receive care or to care for our patients ... so if they could receive care 30 minutes closer, that’s a benefit for the communities as well,” Bacik said.
Gibadlo is going on 13 years at Nexton and said there is has another 13 or 14 years left in the business plan. He still remembers those early years, though, sitting in a Welcome Center trailer praying that builders and homebuyers would think outside the box.
Convincing people to give Nexton a chance was hard a decade ago given the location.
Over time, Gibadlo has found that if he pushes the envelope to create value, the innovation is well-received.
“I think the potential for Nexton is really evolving continuously. What we used to think was possible we’ve exceeded now. Maybe we can take it another step,” he said. “A hospital was something we only dreamed about 10 years ago. Now that’s happening.”
Nexton now receives calls almost daily from groups, retailers and home builders who want to create something exciting at the community. Gibadlo said the biggest challenge is prioritizing. If he reacts to every call, he risks losing focus of the long-term vision that Nexton is systematically moving through.
“At the same time, you have to be flexible enough that if you get a call, like from MUSC, you change track a little bit because that’s a great opportunity,” he said.
A community with a master plan allowed Gibadlo and his team to be deliberate about adding a hospital. They could look at the map of the 5,000 acres to find a plot that was accessible, wouldn’t disrupt homeowners with traffic and had surrounding space for businesses the hospital could bring in. Gibadlo believes they will come.
As an educational institution, MUSC’s research and development could lead to job opportunities and potential spin-off businesses, he said.
Together, Gibadlo and his team’s vision for Nexton stem from a love for the region. He knows, however, that with any growth, there will inevitably be challenges. The objective then is to figure out how to make those obstacles positive.
“We look at it and say hey, we can create this employment center in the Charleston region, take some of the pressure off downtown, 526, everyone commuting and bring some of the great things that people love about this region from a quality of life and bring them to another location that can spread them out a little bit,” he said. “Maybe we can play a small role in helping this region continue to be a great place to live. At the heart of it, that’s what motivates us every day.”

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - The Nexton community in Summerville is planning to grow in 2021.
The master-planned community has already brought new homes, restaurants, hotels, and businesses to the I-26 corridor.
Nexton’s Vice President of Operations, Brent Gibadlo, says they are creating a community environment where individuals can thrive.
“By making a genuine effort to understand the market and recognizing Nexton’s unique opportunity to positively impact our customers, we have created an ergonomic community plan that applies thoughtful architecture, innovative design and social responsibility in order to optimize human well-being,” Gibadlo said.
Work is expected to begin on more than 500 new homes in Nexton within the next year. Developers hope that some of these homes will be completed by the Summer of 2022.
Developers say the first 250 homes in the Midtown development phase of Nexton are expected to be delivered in 2021.
The Lou Hammond Group says the Birmingham, Alabama-based Capstone Communities recently announced the introduction of 282 single-family, for-rent homes at Nexton. These rental homes are scheduled to be delivered in late 2021 and be completed in the Summer of 2022.
Another 100 lots by TrueHomes are planned for the North Creek neighborhood this year as well.
In February, the Lou Hammond Group says they plan to see the groundbreaking of the Midtown Club. It’s a swim and fitness center that will serve the Nexton Residential Association.
A full-service First Citizens Bank branch is expected to open at Nexton in late 2021. Construction recently began in January on the new bank.
Developers are also planning to break ground on “Downtown Nexton” this year. The downtown area of Nexton will be separate from the existing Nexton Square, where events like the Sounds on the Square have taken place. However, Downtown Nexton is expected to be located within walking distance of Nexton Sqaure.
Downtown Nexton is planned to be 100-acres and come between Brighton Park Boulevard and Sigma Drive.
More specifics will be shared soon on the downtown area, but initial plans show it will have a new gas station and offer multifamily community opportunities.
