September 2022 Tree of the Month

September 2022 1

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- An amazing cluster of Live Oaks is recognized by the NMB Tree Board as the "Tree of the Month" for September 2022.


The Live Oaks are located at the residence of Mr. Orren Bannen on Strand Avenue in North Myrtle Beach.


Bannen bought the home in 1986, and the trees have matured and grown along with him. Bannon is now 93 years young. He splits his time between his home in North Myrtle Beach and a home in Statesboro, Georgia. 


Mr. Bannen says he's allowed the Live Oaks to grow naturally and includes several other native plants on his property including Wax Myrtles and Red Cedars.


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


The Tree of the Month program began in 2010 to recognize trees within the city that have been preserved over the years. It also provides a platform to remind people of the benefits and importance that trees offer in our everyday 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.
