[ARCHIVED] November Tree of the Month Award

Tree-of-the-Month

TREE OF THE MONTH FOR NOVEMBER

The North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board has selected an Eastern Red Cedar at Phillip and Darlene Fuller’s vacation home at 932 Strand Avenue for its November Tree of the Month Award.   

There is an old adage that says that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago and the second-best time to plant a tree is today.  The Tree City Board embraces that philosophy and takes it a step further in its belief that preserving existing trees is even better than planting new ones.  It is with that thought in mind that the Board recognized the Fuller’s Eastern Red Cedar. 

When the Fullers tore down an old structure around 2008 and built the vacation home that sits there today, they made the decision to preserve the Eastern Red Cedar and two oak trees, and a magnolia tree. While the trees might not have been in the perfect location relative to the house, the Fullers appreciated their shape and function and recognized that, depending on the tree, it would take 10-40 years for replacement trees to achieve that size. It is especially for that realization and open-mindedness that the Board presented the November Tree of the Month award to the Fullers and their Eastern Red Cedar.

ABOUT THE TREE CITY BOARD

The Tree City Board began its Tree of the Month program in 2010 in order to recognize preserved trees in the city and those who care for them. The program also helps highlight the many benefits trees offer in our daily lives.

If you think you have the biggest, prettiest, or most unusual tree in North Myrtle Beach, or that your tree has a unique story attached to it, the Tree City Board encourages you to contact Parks & Grounds Superintendent Jim Grainger at (843) 280‐5571 or via email at nmbtreeboard@nmb.us.  

Property owners and developers interested in finding learning more about how they can preserve trees on their property are encouraged to contact the North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board at nmbtreeboard@nmb.us.
