The wanton demolition of the world’s rainforests painfully demonstrates that it doesn’t take much for someone to remove a tree, which is why Palmetto Tree Service’s founder, ISA-certified arborist Robert Thompson, seeks to bring environmental responsibility to his services. Though he and his team do everything they can to preserve our bark-covered friends—including pruning for health and fertilization—sometimes removal is unavoidable because of irreparable damage or disease. In those cases, Palmetto donates $1 to the Arbor Day Foundation for each tree it removes while providing staffers to extend their arms as a place for weary birds to rest. Palmetto Tree Service also lends its services to clearing the damage caused by hurricanes, the most recent of which have been Charlie, Ivan, Wilma, Katrina, Ike, and Irene. Its respect for all things green is also the driving force behind its use of AlturnaMats, which protect lawns when heavy equipment is needed to complete a job.
Charleston Bicycle Company equips the helmeted masses with their two-wheeled counterparts thanks to the shop staff's more than 45 years of combined cycling experience. The standard tune-up primes spoked speedsters for the riding months ahead. A specialized technician will assess your bike's mechanical operation, inspecting for damages and receding hairlines along its frame. Lubrication of the pivot points and shift components optimize agility, and a bracket tweaking facilitates smooth spinning. In addition to a thorough tightening of levers, shifts, seat posts, derailleurs, and more, a road-warrior mechanic inspects brake-pad surfaces, ensuring they are still as sturdy as a celebrity gladiator’s redwood treehouse. Once completed, your entire bike receives a mild cleaning of frame, parts, and wheels before conquering the concrete with milder modesty. Charleston Bicycle Company can usually primp your ride and turn it around within two to three days—sometimes on the same day.
