THE STORY:

This July my bike and I are off to Milwaukee to ride the 2014 STIHL Tour des Trees to benefit the TREE Fund. I’ve signed up to ride over 500 miles in a week and raise $4,000.00 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).

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 the south 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.

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.

So, do you want to ride 500 miles with me for tree research and education? Here’s another option: would you donate $50 (or whatever you can afford) to my campaign, and I’ll do the riding? I would really appreciate your support and the trees will appreciate it, too!
