Ride the 2017 STIHL Tour des Trees through Maryland • Virginia • Washington, D.C. and join us in celebrating our 25th anniversary!
Healthy trees are rooted in research! The STIHL Tour des Trees is an annual weeklong, 500 to 600-mile cycling adventure and the primary public outreach and engagement event of Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund). Since 1992 Tour riders have cycled to communities in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., planting trees, educating children, and raising awareness of the importance of science-based tree care.
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. The Tour also funds education programs that connect young people with the environment and career opportunities in green industries. As we mark our silver anniversary this year, we celebrate the Tour’s legacy as enabling a better understanding of how to keep our urban canopy healthy and growing strong.
All funds raised by Tour riders directly support tree research, arboriculture education, and scholarships administered by 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.
