The STIHL Tour des Trees, an annual weeklong, 500 to 600-mile cycling adventure, is the primary public outreach and engagement event of Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund).
Since 1992 Tour riders have cycled to communities in the UK, Canada and the USA, planting trees, educating children and shining a light on the work done by arboriculture professionals and the importance of science-based tree care.
Mike Connick, Managing Director of Connick Tree Care, combines his passion for trees and love of cycling to support this event. This years event is based in Washington DC.
