This October my bike and I will travel to Charlotte, NC to ride the 2016 STIHL Tour des Trees to benefit the TREE Fund. I’ve signed up to ride over 500 miles in a week and raise $3,500.00 for the TREE Fund because I believe that the research and education this ride supports are critical to the well-being of our communities and everyone who inhabits them.
The research and education funded by the TREE Fund via the STIHL Tour des Trees helps to ensure that tree care professionals are well equipped to keep up with the problems faced by urban trees. 100% of your donation to my campaign will support tree research and education.
My passion is not only the trees but the people who care for them. My mission is to bring awareness to the Safe Arborist Techniques Fund. This category supports research into tree dynamics, hazard identification, risk management, and improvements in equipment and techniques for the practicing arborist. Feel free to target your donation to the Safe Arborist Techniques fund. Simply make a note on your check or write in comment box online. Otherwise, your donation will go to the general fund.
This is my first year doing the Tour des Trees. It will definitely be an adventure. If you would be willing to support me in this adventure for the trees, please donate whatever amount you are able to my campaign. You can donate online or by mailing a check to the address below (please note my name in the memo section if you mail a check). The trees and I appreciate your support!
