The North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board has selected a live oak tree on the grounds of South State Bank, 600 Main Street, North Myrtle Beach as its Tree of the Month for April.
According to South State Bank AVP Branch Manager Brittany Johnson, the bank was designed and constructed specifically to avoid interfering with the tree, which has withstood hurricanes and storms over the years with very little damage.
The Tree of the Month program began in 2010 as a way to recognize trees within the community 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
