The mission of the Tree Research Education and Endowment Fund (TREE Fund) is to identify and fund projects and programs to benefit people, trees, and the environment.
The Tour des Trees is the signature public awareness and fundraising event that supports the mission of the TREE Fund.
The TREE Fund supports carefully chosen researchers around the world and awards up to four $3,000 scholarships to college students each year. In addition, the Tour’s outreach events help educate the public about the importance of tree care and mobilize support for tree programs.
The goals of the Fund are to:
- Understanding the benefits of trees
- Stopping diseases and pests
- Improving methods for growing strong, healthy landscape trees
- Dramatically reducing pesticide use through Plant Health Care (PHC) programs
