STIHL® Tour des Trees®
The STIHL® Tour des Trees® is the signature fundraising event of the Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund). This week-long, 500-mile cycling event has become America's largest fundraiser to improve the care of trees through research and education. Since its inception in 1992, the STIHL Tour des Trees has generated more than $6 million for the TREE Fund and has funded a variety of research around the world, such as new disease control methods and improved safety methods for arborists and other tree care professionals.
As the title sponsor for the STIHL Tour des Trees, STIHL is excited to be instrumental in promoting responsible environmental stewardship and proud that the 2012 STIHL Tour des Trees raised more than $600,000 for the TREE Fund.
