TREE Fund – Tree Research & Education Endowment Fund






Our 2014 Riders need your help!!

Paul Buck and Jeff Palmer are riding to raise money for the TREE Fund and they can not do it without you!!


The STIHL Tour des Trees is a weeklong, 500-mile cycling event held each year to benefit the Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund). Since 1992 the Tour des Trees has raised more than $6.6 million for scientific research and education programs related to arboriculture (the science of caring for trees in a landscape) and urban forestry. STIHL Inc. has championed the Tour as title sponsor since 2009.

Full-Tour cyclists commit to raising at least $3500 for the TREE Fund. The money raised supports the discovery of better methods for propagation, planting and care of urban trees. The Tour also funds education programs aimed at connecting young people with the environment and with career opportunities in the green industries. The legacy of the STIHL Tour des Trees also includes an ever-expanding urban forest planted by its cyclists and a better appreciation within its destination communities for the trees which shade their lives.
