Safety was the top priority for Giroud Tree and Lawn’s grant. We removed hazardous limbs that hung over high traffic areas that included the children’s playground.

The Abington YMCA walking paths and children’s play area are now safer thanks to a $3,250 grant for tree service from Giroud Tree and Lawn.

The grant from Giroud Tree and Lawn focuses on the Abington YMCA’s most urgent tree service needs. According to Rob Nagy, Giroud Arborist and ISA Certified Arborist, “Safety was the top priority for Giroud’s grant. We removed hazardous limbs that hung over high traffic areas that included the children’s playground, walking path and the bus loading zone.”

“When children participate in our pre-school, after school and camp programs, we want them to have fun, learn and of course, be safe.” says Missy Di Massa, Associate Executive Director, Abington YMCA. “Giroud’s donation helps to ensure the safety of the trees surrounding the areas where our children play and walk.”
