Professor Elwood Pricklethorn
It’s Professor Elwood Pricklethorn at your Service Berry! And welcome to my official Tour des Trees 2019 fundraising site.
It’s both an honour and a pleasure to be part of this year’s tour where we will be cycling a 400-mile route in September, through beautiful Tennessee and Kentucky. This tour marks my 17th consecutive Tour des Trees. I love my cycling tree family!
The Tour blends all of my passions and ultimately directs tax- deductible dollars to a great cause. The cause is simple: to advance professional urban tree care through progressive research and to increase public awareness through educational initiatives. We bring professional care and intelligence to the trees and engage tree enthusiasts along the way. We need your help to benefit the trees so the trees can benefit us.
I will be doing 7 educational stops along the way, reaching out with an animated and highly interactive tree presentation designed for children of all ages. My not yet world famous, but highly educational, “Trees Please and Thank You!” program will be a top-notch draw at camps and schools alike along the route in Tennessee and Kentucky!
Tour des Trees presents a creative opportunity to support progressive research and education involving one of our most overlooked resources on the planet and I am asking for your support.
Funds raised here in Canada are granted out annually to worthy projects by the Canadian TREE Fund, including the Jack Kimmel International Research Grant. In the USA, The International TREE Fund administers funds and awards grants to worthy projects around the globe. All pledges will be followed up with registered charitable tax receipts, both in Canada and the USA.
