Our Treework for Charity program is our pride and joy at Giroud Tree and Lawn. One of the pillars of our business is helping our community where we can, and we were extremely excited to partner with Horizon House.

Giroud Tree and Lawn donated a full day of free tree care services to prune and remove hazards from approximately nine trees at Horizon House as part of their Treework for Charity program. The Giroud tree service crew arrived at Horizon House’s Germantown residential location early in the morning where temperatures were hovering around freezing. Focusing on tree health and safety, the crew pruned and removed deadwood and potentially weak branches that could present a danger to the residents and pedestrians.

“Tree care is important to Horizon House as we know that to keep our properties safe, we must properly maintain our trees," said Peggy Rowe, Advancement Director at Horizon House. "Pruning unwanted limbs and deadwood removal not only helps secure and protect those living, working, visiting, or passing by our sites, it also maintains and improves the property appearance of the neighborhood.”

Giroud Tree and Lawn’s Treework for Charity program started in 1997 as a way to help local charities in the communities where the company operates. Providing roughly $80,000 worth of charitable tree work, Giroud has helped numerous non profit organizations such as the Hatboro YMCA Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Academy, and Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust.

Horizon House has been in operation for over 60 years, providing services to over 4,500 people annually who have disabilities, suffer from addiction, or who are homeless. With over 120 locations in Pennsylvania including 47 residential locations, Horizon House is one of the area’s largest human services organizations. If you know of any 501 © 3 organizations in need of tree work, contact Giroud by filling out a Treework for Charity form. For more information on Horizon House, visit Horizon House's website.
