Eco-Responsible Tree Removal in West Ashley, 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.

Multifamily real estate firm will build 155 single-family townhomes in growing Charleston suburb at Bees Ferry Road as part of expanding Storia platform
CHARLESTON, S.C., July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- RangeWater Real Estate has closed on 17 acres at Bees Ferry Road and Bluewater Way in the vibrant West Ashley community, in Charleston, S.C.
The multifamily developer is planning an all 3-bedroom, 2-bath community of townhomes called Bellerose at Bees Ferry, a Storia neighborhood. The beautifully appointed homes will have one-car garages, 9-foot ceilings, gourmet kitchens with top-end appliances and stone countertops. The community will feature an open-air club house, pool, firepits and planned events to delight residents.
"We're excited to be part of the thriving West Ashley community," said Palmer McArthur, RangeWater's Managing Director of the Carolinas and Tennessee. "The city of Charleston is investing in Plan West Ashley to support this area as a future employment node and commercial hub."
Charleston Parks Conservancy is planning The West Ashley Greenway & Bikeway and the Charleston International Airport is less than a 20-minute drive away.
"Charleston is one of our favorite places to develop because of the lifestyle and economic opportunity here," said Steven Shores, Chairman and CEO of RangeWater. "Residents are attracted to the beautiful beaches and waterways of this area, as well as Charleston's historic charm and plentiful jobs. We're proud to bring a Storia neighborhood to best serve this demographic."
RangeWater closed on the 17-acre property and will break ground in August. First move-ins are slated for October 2023. Bellerose at Bees Ferry will be convenient to parks, waterways and popular destinations like Edisto River Brewing Company and Southern Roots Smokehouse.
"The real work begins now," added Matthew Beck, RangeWater development director for the Charleston and Nashville. "Our team's ability to immerse ourselves in the fabric of an existing neighborhood is a defining quality in our process, and one we very much look forward to delivering on."
Privately owned RangeWater was founded in 2006. The company acquires, develops, manages and invests in multifamily communities across the Southeastern and Southwestern United States, with a $6.3 billion portfolio.
RangeWater's Storia division is deploying more than $800 million in capital across the Sun Belt to build homes for rent (also known as BTR, or build-to-rent). RangeWater launched its first Storia properties in Georgia and has several thousand BTR units in the pipeline, with new communities under development from Atlanta in the Southeast to Boulder, Colorado, in the Mountain West to San Antonio and Fort Worth, Texas in the Southwest.
Today, BTR is more than 15 percent of RangeWater's portfolio. The company has been awarded 95 projects representing 12,488 homes in communities across the country under management or development in 64 cities in 11 states for more than 28 clients.
Bellerose at Bees Ferry will be the company's first Storia project in S.C., though RangeWater is active in the Charleston region with conventional multifamily properties. The company recently built and sold The Merchant, an award-winning community in a historic Charleston neighborhood that included 18 buildings spanning several city blocks. RangeWater has 11 communities under management in the state.

West Ashley mother desperate after mold in apartment sends child to hospital

They were hoping for a fresh start.But then, Washington and her kids started to get sick."I am getting headaches, I am dizzy, it is hard for me to get up and work, and then I come home, but when I get up and work, I feel better because I am out of the house," says Washington....
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Mold, debris and bugs -- a persistent problem several West Ashley families have in their apartments.
Dana Washington and her two young children moved into The Shires Apartments complex just four months ago. They were hoping for a fresh start.
But then, Washington and her kids started to get sick.
"I am getting headaches, I am dizzy, it is hard for me to get up and work, and then I come home, but when I get up and work, I feel better because I am out of the house," says Washington.
For Dana, it has gotten to the point where her daughter has developed a cough, and her son was hospitalized twice in one day.
"He got worse at the house. He actually developed a fever at the house. So, I was panicking, like I do not know what to do, like I am giving him chicken noodle soup, I'm doing everything," says Washington.
That's when she says her doctor told her they're experiencing symptoms due to mold exposure.
"We went to the hospital, and they let me know it must be something coming from our home, like something we are digesting," says Washington.
Dana tells us she started searching through her home to see what could be causing the problems. That's when she found the mold growing in an unused closet next to her son's room.
Washington says she reached out to her apartment management more than a week ago.
She was told they were going to address the issues, but so far, nothing has happened.
“I have been waiting, I have barely left home, because I am waiting for them to come and to tell us what to do, so we can get out of here," says Washington.
And as she waits, she worries about her children's health.
"I do not know what I would do without my kids. When I saw my son sick in that hospital bed, and he couldn’t even- I had to pick my child up. I don’t know what I would do if I lost my kids," says Washington
In the meantime, Charles House, a non-profit that helps people dealing with housing problems, is stepping in.
“Our question is, what is going to be done for this family? They are being hospitalized, they're ingesting this, the least we can do is put them in a hotel and remove them from the environment until something is done," says Makayla McColling with Charles House.
For now, Washington reminds others in the same situation to speak up.
"If you are going through the same issue, do not blame yourself," says Washington.
We have reached out to the management of the apartment complex and have not heard back.
If you would like to get in contact with Charles' House you can call them at +1 (854) 844-7185

Swim instructor saves child from drowning at West Ashley pool

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCIV) — A terrifying moment at a West Ashley pool turned a swim instructor into a hero.
Melissa Macdonald, a swim instructor and lifeguard of eight years, saved an 11-year-old girl from drowning last Thursday. She said it was one of the most terrifying days on the job.
“All of the sudden we heard someone in distress over in the corner, and someone started yelling for help," Macdonald recalled.
She got her students out of the water, and immediately ran to the other side of the pool where a girl was being pulled out of the water.
“She was floating face down. There weren’t really any signs of life, no movement, nothing like that,” Macdonald said. “She was starting to turn that blue color. You know that oxygen is just not flowing.”
Macdonald and a few other people at the pool started CPR.
"My brain just kind of goes into 'Go' mode,” she said. “I have never seen a kid at that stage. We call that hypoxia which means that the oxygen is not getting to the brain, it’s not flowing and you can tell by the shade of the skin.”
After seven rounds of CPR, the girl started breathing.
“It was like one of those things where you’re in the really stressful 'Go' mode, and you don’t know what’s going to happen, and then immediately you just feel a sense of relief,” said Macdonald.
While this was Macdonald’s first time having to save a child’s life, Amy Emde, the owner of Charleston Swim School, says drownings are more common than people think.
“Unfortunately, it happens about two to three times a year, not to the point where they’ve already drowned, such as this young girl did. But there’s been many times our instructors have had to jump in to save a child that’s actually drowning because someone isn’t paying attention,” Emde said.
Emde called Macdonald a hero, but Macdonald said she was just following her training.
"Knowing that she’s going to be okay, she was breathing when the situation had ended and just knowing that we did what we could and the kid is going to be okay, that helped me a lot," Macdonald said.
'I'm worried': Mold problems persist for West Ashley renter

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — A family in West Ashley is concerned about their health. Their apartment is covered in mold and in serious need of repair.
We first brought you their story in November. Eight months later, the problem may be even worse.
“This where all the mold and stuff, and you can see it up on the board,” says Letehua Johnson, pointing out the mold in her pantry.
Johnson says the mold is just the first problem in her West Ashley apartment.
“[My mom’s] ceiling is about to cave in for the bathroom and the living room.”
The mother and daughter have lived at the Ashley Arms apartment for eight years. They say they’ve reported the mold several times to management and got one person to come out in the very beginning.
“She sent a maintenance guy and they sprayed something in my closet, and I put all my stuff back,” Johnson says.
She says the mold came back, and no one came by to fix it.
Johnson asked an agent from the Charleston Livability Division to come and inspect her unit. The report says the inspector found a presence of mold in the kitchen sink and suggested the carpet be replaced. Johnson thought this would fix her issues.
“They supposed to send corporate out to check it, but nobody never came,” she says.
We called the apartment complex leasing office and left multiple voicemails to ask about Johnson’s concerns. We also called the ownership group for the property and found out the complex has changed ownership hands at least twice since 2019.
“You’re not getting the help that you think you getting,” says Johnson.
Johnson and her mother lived in a nearby hotel for a bit but say it was too expensive. Now they’re packing up and trying to find somewhere to live.
“I’m worried about me and my mom getting hurt in the apartment, and I just want me and her to be safe.”
We are still working to learn the name of the corporate company that now owns Ashley Arms Apartments to get a statement from them on the Johnson’s concerns.
Continental Realty adds 7th SC property to portfolio

Continental Realty Corporation (CRC), a Baltimore-based real estate investment and management company, purchased its seventh asset in the greater Charleston, South Carolina metropolitan area with the $3.9 million acquisition of The Shops at Towne Centre Way, a 7,054 square foot retail center at 1903 N.

Continental Realty Corporation (CRC), a Baltimore-based real estate investment and management company, purchased its seventh asset in the greater Charleston, South Carolina metropolitan area with the $3.9 million acquisition of The Shops at Towne Centre Way, a 7,054 square foot retail center at 1903 N. Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant.
CRC acquired this asset in an off-market transaction from Church Property LLC, with Trey Lucy, Principal at Belk | Lucy representing both sides in the transaction.
The center is immediately adjacent to two CRC assets: Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, a 510,000-square-foot regional shopping venue acquired by the company in 2020, and Sweetgrass Corner, a nearly 90,000 square foot neighborhood shopping center purchased by CRC earlier this year.
The Shops at Towne Centre Way was purchased on behalf of Continental Realty Fund V, L.P., managed by CRC. Fund V is a $210.8 million private equity fund focused on acquiring value-add retail and multifamily properties in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions. This represents the 11th retail asset acquired by Fund V, following the $17 million acquisition of Sweetgrass Corner. Also through Continental Realty Fund V, in early 2022 CRC acquired 175 of the 200 apartment units contained within Sweetgrass Landing Apartments for $55 million. Since its inception, Fund V has acquired a total of 15 retail and multifamily properties.
In the Mount Pleasant area, Fund V also owns The Six Apartments, a 92-unit community located at 2170 Snyder Circle in Mount Pleasant which was acquired this January. CRC now owns seven assets in the greater Charleston area, including Central Island Square, a mixed-use project within the 4,000-acre master-planned community of Daniel Island and consisting of 313 multifamily units and nearly 30,000 square feet of retail space; and West Ashley Shoppes, a nearly 140,000 square foot neighborhood retail center across from Citadel Mall.
Constructed in 2001, The Shops at Towne Centre Way consists of four retail spaces that were 100% leased at the time of the transaction, including a nail salon, vision center and Marble Slab Creamery. The asset is situated on a corner lot with direct exposure to Mount Pleasant Towne Center and Sweetgrass Corner between N. Highway 17 and Hungry Neck Boulevard near the intersection of Isle of Palms Connector.
Nearly 45,000 vehicles pass the site on a daily basis via US Highway 17, and the center is located on a strategic corridor connecting Mount Pleasant to Charleston, with direct links to Interstate 526 serving the nearby towns of Daniel Island, North Charleston and West Ashley. Nearly 60,000 consumers, with an average household income exceeding $125,000, reside within a three-mile radius of The Shops at Towne Centre Way.
Dorchester Co. looking to expand Ashley River Park to at least 300 acres

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - It is no secret that development is booming in the Tri-County area, but officials in Dorchester County say they are making efforts to preserve part of the county before it is too late.
Dorchester County Councilmember Jay Byars said the county wants to expand Ashley River Park from its current 83 acres to at least 300 acres.
“We’re not going to be able to get this land back once it’s developed,” Byars said. “Our vision is to be able to save this for future generations and just make this park as large as we can.”
Ashley River Park could soon be expanding across Bacons Bridge Road onto 112 acres of land the county wants to conserve. Byars said the county is allocating around $3.3 million to build a tunnel underneath the roadway for pedestrian access across both sides.
Byars said the county is turning land that would have become homes into public-use facilities.
“This is an opportunity where instead of 147 houses and 200 apartments across the street, now you’re going to have 300 acres of park property on the river,” Byars said.
On the 112 acres, the county will soon be building a nearly $10 million library, which will have learning, creation and multimedia spaces for residents.
“We really want to be able to give people opportunities to learn, to recreate and just have a better quality of life,” Byars said, “and this is literally going to be 10 minutes from 140,000 people in Dorchester County.”
Neighbors said they are supportive of the park and its possible expansion.
“I’ve seen my neighbors go kayaking out there,” neighbor John McPherson said. “My dogs go out there all the time, grandkids, I mean, a lot of people in the neighborhood actually use the park too. I mean, it’s been a good thing, really.”
Eventually, the county said they want to connect Ashley River Park to neighboring Rosebrock Park’s trails via a bridge over the Ashley River.
Speaking of the river, the county said if the expansion goes to plan, around two miles of the park will face the river’s edge.
“You’re going to have fishing opportunities, trails, just walking trails to get out and enjoy yourself,” Byars said, “and we’re going to look at other opportunities, as well. We’ve got a blank slate to start creating even more opportunities over there.”
The county said they will be breaking ground on that library next month and say the park expansion will take about two to three years to complete.

NORTH CHARLESTON — Daryl Hall, who used to live in Charleston, is now coming back for a concert.
The rock ‘n’ roll hall of famer, made popular by pop-rock music duo Hall & Oates, will play at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Aug. 11.
Hall bought and renovated a house on Meeting Street, below Broad Street, in the 2010s, which he lived in for years and then sold during the pandemic.
Hall began sharing his love for home preservation and restoration back in 2014 on his Magnolia Network show “Daryl’s Restoration Over-Hall.”
“One of my passions outside of music is antique architecture,” Hall told The Post and Courier over the phone. “Obviously, Charleston is chock-full of it. I found this 1750s house South of Broad and renovated it and lived there for years.”
Hall said his passion for architecture and renovating, along with music, runs in his family. His grandfather was a stone and brick mason and used to build houses and chimneys. So, Hall was around a lot of construction sites in his hometown of Philadelphia; he used to help with some renovations himself.
He’s also spent a lot of time in England renovating houses there, some of which are featured on his TV show.
“I really love the craftsmanship involved in it,” he said.
He shared that his Charleston house needed less of a restoration than many of the other houses he’s worked on in the past, but he did restore some parts of the top two floors and tore one floor apart completely to reconfigure the space.
“I didn’t want to alter the integrity of the house,” Hall said. “I’m a purist. I mostly left it alone.”
Now, he lives in Connecticut in another house he’s restored, but he remembers his time in Charleston fondly.
Hall, who classifies himself as a homebody, said he didn’t go out much when he lived here but loved to host friends at his home.
“I’m not a person who likes to do a lot of things,” he said with a laugh. “But I do love Charleston. It’s one of my favorite cities.”
He also recorded music at a couple of local studios while he lived in the Holy City.
Those include Truphonic Recording Studios in West Ashley, where Ranky Tanky, Stop Light Observations and Darius Rucker have recorded.
And The Space in North Charleston with Wolfgang Zimmerman, the producer behind some Band of Horses, Susto and Futurebirds records.
Hall’s stepdaughter March Fry worked at The Space.
“We didn’t actually get to work with him, but he did come in when (March) was recording,” Zimmerman said. “I did want to record with him, though.”
During this upcoming trip to Charleston, Hall won’t be sharing the stage with his usual counterpart John Oates.
For this tour, he’s joined by Daryl’s House Band, the group that plays with him on another TV show he hosts, “Live From Daryl’s House.”
The live performance, Hall said, is very similar to the show. Todd Rundgren and his band open up the set, and the environment is staged to feel familiar to “Live From Daryl’s House.”
While Hall does, of course, play some classic Hall & Oates hits, he also has been focusing on the songs throughout his catalogue that might not have been as recognized or appreciated at the time. Most are being pulled from his latest album, “Before After,” which is a solo retrospective that chronicles his music the way he wants, as an alternative history of sorts.
“I’ve always been interested in a lot of directions,” Hall said. “What I do with John Oates, that’s one thing, but over the years I’ve been doing creative projects with a lot of people and in a lot of situations that have not been exhibited as largely as what I do with John or under the name Hall & Oates.”
He said he thinks the new album is necessary to equalize things and show off the different aspects of his musical life. It’s a reintroduction to his catalogue, and “it’s all things Daryl,” he shared.
“There’s a lot more freedom involved,” he added. “I’ve never been comfortable being half-something, that’s not where I’m coming from. In truth, I never was, so clarifying and vindicating that makes me feel good.”
Hall has also been getting back into those “Live from Daryl’s House” jams, which were stopped during the pandemic. Filming will pick up in September and last through November; he doesn’t know exactly how he will release the series this time around, but it’s more about the experience for him.
And he shared that he’s excited about some guests he’ll be collaborating with this fall.
“I love everything about it: spontaneity, variation, the challenge of it, the working with people who are complete strangers,” he said. “I never know what’s going to happen, and I never come out of it the same way I go into it.”
He’s also been recording music with Dave Stewart of British pop duo Eurythmics, who has co-produced albums with Hall in the past, at Stewart’s house in the Bahamas. They’ve got eight songs under their belt so far, Hall said.
No matter who he’s playing or recording with, Hall said, he holds onto his sensibilities and his voice. That’s the glue that keeps all his projects together, despite how different they might seem.
He hopes this Charleston show will be a reintroduction, not only of him to his former place of residence, but of his fans to some of his work over the years that hasn’t gotten a chance in the spotlight.
