September North Myrtle Beach Tree of the Month
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Friday, September 1, 2017


The North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board has selected a pink Flowering Dogwood located at the home of Wayne and Pinky Wilson, 703 9th Avenue South, as its Tree of the Month for September.

The Dogwood is native to the southeastern United States. It grows well in sandy soil and has few serious pest problems. It does best in partial shade like the under-story of large Pines and Oaks.

The Dogwoods April flowers range in color from white to ruby red, depending on the variety of the tree, but nearly all have scarlet leaves and red berries in the fall of the year. 

Though difficult to transplant, Flowering Dogwoods make excellent landscape specimens once established.

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 as a way 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 atnmbtreeboard@nmb.us.
