Crape Myrtles are not a true native tree, but they have been a South Carolina tree for hundreds of years! They were introduced to Charleston, South Carolina between 1787 and 1796 and are an important food source for many songbirds.

When to Plant Trees in South Carolina?

When to Prune Trees in South Carolina?

Winter or early spring is the best time to prune most South Carolina trees including shade trees and evergreen trees. However, trees that blossom in spring should be pruned after their flowering period to avoid bloom loss. Fall, when temperatures are cooling down and trees are beginning to slow down their metabolic processes, is also a good time for pruning South Carolina trees. Minor trimming can be done anytime of the year. Broken, dead, or diseased branches should be pruned off when you notice them.
