The STIHL Tour des Trees is the signature annual fundraiser of the TREE Fund and is a week-long, 500-mile cycling event. The Tour des Trees, recognizing its 20th Anniversary in 2012, has raised more than $5 million for the TREE Fund and its mission to support research, scholarships and educational programs in the fields of arboriculture and urban forestry.
The 2012 STIHL Tour des Trees will launch from Portland, Oregon on August 5th and pedal 585 miles through Oregon’s rich coastline, vineyards, high desert and Columbia River Gorge looping back to Portland. Tour riders return year after year, joining their “Tree Family” to spread the message of the TREE Fund and for the camaraderie of their fellow riders.
There are a number of ways to get involved in the STIHL Tour des Trees. Ride the entire Tour, partially ride the Tour, donate to a rider, volunteer, or join the Tour on its final day during the Ride for Research. For more information on how to get involved, please visit www.stihltourdestrees.org.
