Q.Arborvitaes Planted On A 10 Story Building On The Shoreline In North Myrtle Beach SC

Zone 2307 SOUTH OCEAN BLVD, North Myrtle Beach, SC | Anonymous added on December 18, 2021 | Answered

The owner of the rooftop penthouse planted 28 arborvitaes in the planters surrounding his unit. Some have died then replaced, some have been exposed to a disease and have lost many pine needles that have clogged the roof drains. A safety inspector has issued his report that said they should be removed, that they could become projectiles during high winds.
