MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (May 21, 2021) – The Town of Mount Pleasant is launching a community tree planting initiative next week called Take Root Mount Pleasant, designed to encourage residents to take an active role in beautifying our Town and addressing the challenges of growth. Over the coming months, leading up to South Carolina Arbor Day, the Town will be encouraging residents to plant new trees with sapling give-aways, community events, and more.
The benefits of more trees in our community stretch far beyond the aesthetic. Trees improve air quality, raise property values, help to manage stormwater runoff, cool summer heat and lower utility costs.
The Town will provide trees is in the form of seeds, bare root seedlings, sapling plugs, and one-gallon potted trees to residents to plant on their individual properties while supplies last. Residents can pick up their tree on Tuesdays at the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market starting May 25.
