    With the winds up over the last several days in the bay area this is a good reminder that we need to promote proactive tree care. Risk hazards can be reduced significantly through the process of annual tree assessment, implementation of strong cultural practices and routine pruning to maintain structural integrity. GGI is available to develop and implement tree care plans and budget for your properties. Contact your GGI Account Manager or one of our sales team to set up an appointment to review your properties tree inventory.
