Giroud Tree and Lawn provide grant for tree, branch removal in Morrisville

10.25.2018

giroudRYMCA of Bucks County has received a $3800 grant from Giroud Tree and Lawn’s philanthropic branch, Giroud Treework for Charity. 

The grant funded the removal of a large oak tree that was the most urgent service needed as the tree posed a danger to the Youth Education Center building, parking lot and participants.

“We decided to focus our donation on the tree that posed the greatest danger to the property,” explains Erik Rodgers, ISA Certified Giroud Arborist.  “The Oak tree located at the front of the building was growing too close to the walkway going into the building. The roots were causing the walkway to buckle, and I was concerned because that is a potential tripping hazard. Unfortunately, the best course of action was to remove the tree.”

Giroud Tree and Lawn established Treework for Charity in 1997 to help nonprofit organizations preserve their irreplaceable trees, providing free tree service to local nonprofits through a grant application process.  

“We are so grateful for this program that allows charitable, nonprofit organizations to benefit from expert tree services,” said Ahema Asare, director of development at the Y.

YMCA of Bucks County is a charitable, nonprofit organization committed to strengthening our communities through membership and programs that foster youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all.
