Cindy and I are riding our bikes for 475 miles to do what we can to help support tree research and education funded by the TREE Fund. The TREE Fund funds important research focused on many important tree care topics such as increasing tree worker safety, improving the health of our urban forests and helping to educate others of the value and importance of our urban forests. It also provides scholarships to aspiring arborists and urban foresters. I received funding from these funds that helped support my graduate research work. It is our turn to give back and pay it forward as others did for me. Please help us help the TREE Fund by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. The more people that know about the TREE Fund, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
