Greetings from beautiful British Columbia, and welcome to my STIHL Tour des Trees 2018 Fundraising site.
This late-July and early-August's 560-mile route will mark my 14th tour to support Tree Research and Education. In 2003 I planned to ride once and then cross it off my bucket list. BOY WAS I WRONG. After one Tour I was hooked on the riding, the camaraderie, and most of all the opportunity to keep raising money to support TREE Research through the Canadian TREE Fund. As a practicing utility arborist, and president of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture I see the benefits of research almost daily. And everyone sees the benefit daily in healthier, safer trees, and in a vibrant urban forest.
Please support me in my efforts to raise more than ever before for TREE Research. Funds raised are granted out annually by the Canadian TREE Fund to support worthy projects coast to coast, and in partnership with the International TREE Fund to support The International Jack Kimmel Grant that impacts tree research around the world. All pledges over $25 are followed up with registered charitable tax receipts. To further acknowledge you and others who contribute to the fund we will be including your donor information in a multi-levelled formal program involving Canadian TREE Fund newsletter publications and websites.
A great big THANK YOU for your support, Phil.
