North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board Presents Tree of the Month Award for February

The North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board has selected an oak tree located at Trinity United Methodist Church, 706 14th Avenue South, as its Tree of the Month for February.

Those familiar with the tree’s history say it was planted in 1976 in memory of Jim Taibi, who passed away on June 2, 1976. Pastor Reverend William Williams, now a Methodist Bishop, presided over the ceremony and North Myrtle Beach gardener Jane McDaniel supervised the planting.

A hurricane severely damaged one of the tree’s large limbs and a portion of its trunk. Instead of taking the tree down, the church hired an arborist who restored the tree because of its importance to the congregation and the community. As a result, Sunday school classes can continue a tradition of meeting under its branches well into the future.

Property owners and developers interested in finding out how they can preserve trees on their property may contact the North Myrtle Beach Tree City Board

The Tree of the Month program began in 2010 as a way to recognize preserved trees in the city. It also provides a platform to remind people of the benefits and importance that trees offer in our everyday lives.

If you have a tree you would like to be considered for Tree of the Month, contact Parks & Grounds Superintendent Jim Grainger at (843) 280-5571 or via email

Our Sports Tourism Ambassadors, dressed in blue polo shirts, are easily accessible and always eager to answer questions and interact with spectators at North Myrtle Beach sports events. They also provide support for sports tournament directors and at community events.

Many of the families who accompany sports tournament participants to our city stay two or more days in the community and are always looking for things to see and do between games. Sports Tourism Ambassadors help ensure these visitors experience the full range of North Myrtle Beach hospitality.
