BENEFITING: TREE Fund

ORGANIZER: TREE Fund

EVENT: 2016 STIHL Tour des Trees

Karen Jenkins

THE STORY:

This October my bike and I are off to North Carolina 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 (more than 80% of Americans live in urban areas).Healthy trees are rooted in research!

Why should you care? Can you see a tree from your home or office window? Urban trees are vital to our survival. They reduce air pollution, sequester carbon, control erosion, shelter us from heat and wind, and add beauty to our lives. And they cool the air down here in Savannah every summer. It is 5 - 10 degrees cooler in the shade of a mature canopy tree. And trees give us respite from the stressors of our daily lives, and I need you to help me return the favor.

Who benefits from your donation to the STIHL Tour des Trees? EVERYONE, including you--my great supporter! 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.

Urban living is stressful for trees. Pests, diseases, construction, pollution and poor management put our “urban forests” at risk every day. The research and education funded by the TREE Fund through the Tour des Trees helps to ensure that tree care professionals can keep up with the problems faced by urban trees.

Your donation helps to keep the trees in your world strong and healthy and their caretakers educated and safe.  Please be generous. Thank you very mulch!
