DEADLINE TO REGISTER TO RIDE: MAY 31, 2016
Cruise the Carolinas October 9-15 with the 2016 STIHL Tour des Trees!
Healthy trees are rooted in research! Each year, the cyclists of the STIHL Tour des Trees take to the road to raise awareness about the ways that urban trees benefit our communities and to fund the science that keeps those trees strong. This year we’re “cruising the Carolinas” for the TREE Fund and we’re counting on YOU to help us reach our fundraising goal. Please be generous.
Who benefits from your donation? EVERYONE! TREE Fund research has changed the way we care for urban trees, contributing to higher transplant success rates, longer lifespans and fewer tree failures. Every tree lost to disease, decay, insects or neglect leaves a hole in our environmental armor. Tour riders plant dozens of new trees each year, but the Tour’s real legacy is a better understanding of how to keep existing trees healthy and growing strong in challenging urban settings.
Because our event costs are covered by our corporate partners, funds raised by Tour riders are dedicated to tree research, arboriculture education and scholarships administered by the TREE Fund. Donate NOW or mail a check payable to TREE Fund to 552 S. Washington St., Ste. 109, Naperville, IL 60540. Please specify if your contribution is to be applied to a specific rider or team.
