What Clients Say About Us

Eco-Responsible Tree Removal in Johns Island, SC

We have removed thousands of trees over the years. However, we never recommend tree removal if it's not warranted. Some South Carolina tree service companies tend to remove trees when they should be saved or simply pruned. Others go the opposite direction and never recommend tree removal.

Unlike other companies, our arborists make educated recommendations based on experience, your trees, and your needs. We make the right call for you - not for us. If disease, destruction of foundation, or other circumstances necessitate tree removal, rest assured we're recommending it for a reason.

We've already urged Charleston County residents to speak up about the county's emerging plan to address our lack of affordable housing. The first public hearing sessions are now scheduled, so don't miss this chance to voice your opinion.

The first of seven public meetings on the county's Housing Our Future strategy will be held from 5:30-6:30 this afternoon in the southern end of the county, at the St. Paul’s Hollywood Library.

The county's Department of Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization is seeking input on how the county can help residents find safe and suitable housing they can afford. It also is conducting an online survey at surveymonkey.com/r/H6R38SH, and you can find paper copies at any Charleston County public library branch. The deadline for completing a survey is Oct. 31.

Residents also can weigh in at hearings at the Wando Mount Pleasant Library (5:30-6:30 p.m. Aug. 30); James Island Town Hall (5:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 7); the main library at 68 Calhoun St. (5:30-7 p.m. Sept. 12); the Johns Island Library (noon-2 p.m. Sept. 13); Buckshot's restaurant in McClellanville (5:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 13); Sullivan's Island Town Hall (9-11 a.m. Sept. 14); and the county's Public Services Building in North Charleston (5:30-7 p.m. Sept. 14).

So residents have ample opportunities to help the county shape its strategy. Those working on the plan have noted the county's diversity, including its variety of residential areas, from beach communities to historic districts to old and new suburbs and rural areas. The county has the data about the needs in those areas, but it must learn more about the types of actions residents would support to help address them. "We’re exploring the tools at our disposal and detailing strategies that will work best for Charleston County residents,” Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization Director Darrell Davis says. “Charleston County is big and complex, and we’re identifying what strategies will have the most impact and support throughout the county.”

There will not be an affordable housing question on the ballot this fall, which is wise given the proposed initiative's current lack of detail, but County Council has committed at least $20 million in federal COVID money toward helping address the housing affordability problem and explored other steps it could take.

If enough people participate, and the county's fleshed-out housing plan proves sound, County Council could consider allocating more public money toward housing initiatives without asking voters for permission, especially if inflationary trends in the home ownership and rental markets don't ease. We know that the influx of new arrivals to the Charleston region is among the factors driving up prices, particularly as some have sold houses in markets even pricier than ours. These new residents are welcome, but we cannot turn a blind eye to the economic hardships imposed on those who have been here longer and need a new place to live.

Several thousand more units of affordable (some say attainable) housing must be built in the coming years to meet demand. It won't be possible to meet this need without changing the ambiance of some places around the county. That tension represents a hugely challenging aspect of the county's new Housing Our Future plan.

That's why all of us should take advantage of this opportunity to give County Council a better, more specific idea of the changes we can live with and those we want to see down the road.

Proposed redistricting maps could unite Johns Island under one district

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The redistricting process for the city of Charleston is well underway, and Tuesday night the City Council and the public will review potential renderings for the new districts.

Some Johns Islanders are advocating for Johns Island to be all one district, and for the first time in Charleston’s history, there is a potential it could be.

Peter Rubino, a resident of Johns Island, says the original draft from the city split Johns Island into three districts.

Through email campaigns and spreading awareness, he and other advocates were able to get it down to two districts, and after tonight, hopefully, one.

“If you don’t speak up, then you’re not going to get what you need,” Rubino said.

He said having all of Johns Island in one district would give Johns Islanders a real say in their future, and true influence in city decisions.

He said he wants the person who represents Johns Island to live on Johns Island, with the hope that the shared experiences of the island will lead to more impactful decision making.

“We want someone who’s going to live here, and understands the issues, what the desires are of the people who live here and have to put up with the traffic and the growth and all of those things. Because if you don’t live here, you don’t see all those things that are going on,” Rubino said.

Tuesday night, he, along with other advocates, plan to attend the City Council Meeting to continue the fight for one district.

The city of Charleston’s Chief Innovation Officer Tracy Mckee said two scenarios will be presented tonight.

She said the first one prioritizes minimizing change, but splits Johns Island into two districts.

“In that scenario, Johns Island has two representatives, but each of those representatives also represent parts of West Ashley as well as James Island,” McKee said.

She said the second, which keeps Johns Island under one district, prioritizes compactness and communities of interest.

In that scenario, Johns Island has only one representative.

Regardless, Mckee says the City is doing its best to listen to the public and accommodate their desires.

“We have made a really good effort to get public opinion this time and bake that opinion into our plans as much as possible,” Mckee said.

As of now, Johns Island is a part of a larger district in West Ashley. Up until this redistricting, it did not have the population to be its own district.

Tuesday’s meeting is at 5 p.m. at the Charleston City Hall at 80 Broad Street. Rubino encourages those passionate about redistricting on Johns Island to sign up to speak.

Polk County artist to draw portraits in storefront window during Tryon’s Fourth Friday event

During Tryon’s monthly Fourth Friday downtown event on Friday, Sept. 23, Polk County artist Janet Orselli will be quickly drawing volunteers’ faces as part of a future exhibition that she is working on. She will set up in the storefront window of Upstairs Artspace, Tryon’s contemporary art gallery, from 5 to 7 p.m. Each drawing will take five to 20 minutes, and she might take photographs of volunteers so that finishing touches to the portraits can be added later.

During Tryon’s monthly Fourth Friday downtown event on Friday, Sept. 23, Polk County artist Janet Orselli will be quickly drawing volunteers’ faces as part of a future exhibition that she is working on. She will set up in the storefront window of Upstairs Artspace, Tryon’s contemporary art gallery, from 5 to 7 p.m. Each drawing will take five to 20 minutes, and she might take photographs of volunteers so that finishing touches to the portraits can be added later. All of the drawings will stay with Orselli, who is gathering materials for a future exhibition. She will be using graphite/charcoal pencils, ink pens, oil pastels, vine charcoal, and kneaded eraser.

“My main focus when drawing people is on capturing an expression or essence rather than a traditional portrait,” Orselli said. “Also of importance to me is the personal connection formed with each individual through the act of drawing them. The goal is for completed drawings to be presented in a local exhibition.”

“We are so glad to have Janet in our window on Fourth Friday drawing people,” Gallery Manager Steve Wong said. “It should be a lot of fun for everyone and give Janet materials for her future exhibition. The public will be able to see her at work and see some of the finished or nearly finished portraits. Who knows, your face might be one of her award-winning portraits.”

As a multidisciplinary artist, Orselli creates sculptures and assemblages, drawings, and site-specific installations. Her drawn portraits have a reputation for capturing the person’s personality, giving more depth to the image. Her whimsical found-objects seek to stir the viewer’s imagination and resurrect past artifacts with a future filled with meaning. Orselli holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Clemson University. She has been chosen for artist residencies at Anderson Ranch, CO; Spring Island, SC; and Kaiserslautern, Germany. She has received three NC Artist Project Grants and a national Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship. Orselli has exhibited internationally and had more than a dozen solo exhibitions including OK Harris Works of Art in New York City and the Gibbs Museum in Charleston, SC. Her work is featured in the book 100 Southern Artists. She was selected as the fall 2018 Artist-in-Residence at 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, SC, where she completed work for a solo show in 2019.

Upstairs Artspace is a contemporary art gallery located at 49 S. Trade St. in downtown Tryon. It will be open during September’s Fourth Friday for the public to see the current three exhibitions: Carefully Placed Lines on Paper by Tryon architect John Walters; Human Connections by LA artist Catherine Baumhauer and Rock Hill, SC, artist Caroline Rust; and The Thinking Eye by Asheville artists Jeff Kinzel, Martha Skinner, Ralston Fox Smith, and Kevin Hogan. The Gallery is routinely open Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information, please visit their website, UpstairsArtspace.org.

Beaufort smothers Goose Creek on wet nightLowcoSports.com

Colton Phares booted field goals of 24 and 35 yards and helped anchor a dominant defensive effort as the Beaufort Eagles blanked the Goose Creek Gators, 6-0, on a soggy night on Lady’s Island.

Phares connected on a pair of field goals in the first quarter, and that proved to be enough for a nasty Beaufort defense, which came up with a fourth-down stop inside the 5 before halftime and sealed it with a Carter Bowersox interception in the final two minutes.

Quarterback Christian Tilton rushed for 222 yards and two TDs, threw a TD pass, and returned a free kick following a safety for a score to lead the Golden Warriors to a lopsided road win despite playing without star running back Jackson Ogden (ankle). Bryant Jolley, Alex Mercer, and Javi Jimenez each scored their first career TDs for JPII, and Kohl Woodham (6 tackles) and Sam Rembold (5 tackles) anchored the defense, while Sebastian Slusne blocked a punt for a safety and recovered a fumble and Dante Aiken and Dan Snyder each secured interceptions.

Week 4: John Paul II (2-1) at Pinewood Prep (1-3)

Savannah Christian 49, Battery Creek 6

The Dolphins couldn’t slow down the Raiders’ juggernaut offense, as Paulus Zittrauer was 11-of-14 passing for 164 yards and four TDs and Zo Smalls added a touchdown run. Battery Creek’s lone score came on a kickoff return TD from Hunter Hollingsworth. Bluffton’s Logan Brooking had eight tackles, two sacks, and three receptions for 56 yards for Savannah Christian.
