Tour des Trees

pace-line-cropped2The Tour des Trees, an annual weeklong, 500 to 600-mile cycling adventure, is the primary public outreach and engagement event of TREE Fund. Since 1992 Tour riders have cycled through communities in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., planting trees, educating children and shining a light on the work done by arboriculture professionals and the importance of science-based tree care. The Tour serves to advance TREE Fund’s mission to support scientific discovery and dissemination of new knowledge in arboriculture and urban forestry. Funds raised by riders support research grants, education grants and scholarships awarded by TREE Fund.

Full-Tour cyclists commit to raising at least $3,500 for TREE Fund. With these funds, TREE Fund researchers have discovered better ways to plant and care for urban trees, making them more resilient, more resistant to pests, and less prone to failure. The Tour also supports education programs aimed at connecting young people with the environment and career opportunities in green industries.
