Hurricane Hugo struck the Isle of Palms on September 21,1989. This powerful stormdestroyed the natural landscape of thsisland and demolished many homes andbusinesses. In an effort to restore aportion of the natural beauty, a group ofconcerned citizens organized the Plant-A- Palm Committee. The Committeesponsored numerous events, solicitingdonations and grants to raise money for the purchase and planting of over 800native Sabal Palmetto trees along Palm Boulevard. This marker is a tribute tothose who served on the Plant - A - TreeCommittee. The Isle of Palms and itspeople are sincerely grateful.
