The Tour des Trees is a weeklong, 500 to 600-mile cycling event held each year to benefit the Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund).
The money raised goes to scientific research and education programs related to arboriculture, such as discovering better methods for propagation, planting and care of urban trees. The education programs are aimed at connecting young people with the environment and with career opportunities in the green industries.
Healthy, mature trees are the crown jewels of our communities, and science is the urban forest’s best defense against pests, diseases, and the hazards of urban living. Therefor the Tour des Trees also includes tree planting by the cyclists and educational events in communities along the route.
Your donation helps to keep the trees in your world strong and healthy and their caretakers educated and safe. Please be generous. Thank you!
