Greetings from Toronto! Welcome to my official Stihl Tour des Trees 2017 fundraising site.
Cycling the 560-mile route through the DC, MD and VA in late July and early August will mark my 15th consecutive Tour des Trees. The Tour blends two of my favourite 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.
Stihl Tour des Trees presents a creative opportunity to support progressive research and education involving one of our most overlooked resources on the planet. Once again I’ll be heading up the Tour’s educational outreach program and travelling the entire route with my “Arbor Ego”, Professor Elwood Pricklethorn and “his” not yet world famous, but highly educational, “Trees Please and Thank You!” program.
I am asking for your support. Funds raised here in Canada are granted out annually by the Canadian TREE Fund to support worthy projects from Coast to Coast. We also support The Jack Kimmel International Grant program that boosts tree research across the world. All pledges 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-leveled formal recognition program via the Canadian TREE Fund newsletter publications and web sites.
Thanks for your consideration ! Cheers n' Ride on! ~~WARREN~~
