The 2014 Stihl Tour des Trees, a 500-mile bicycling event sponsored by chainsaw and power tools maker Stihl (Virginia Beach, VA), has raised more than $539,000 so far this year.

The event is America’s largest fundraiser for tree research, helping to ensure healthy trees for future generations.

The 2014 event took place July 27 – August 2. Participants cycled 585 miles through Wisconsin.

The annual weeklong cycling event attracts 100 cyclists from around the world, who fundraise to benefit the Tree Research & Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund). The TREE Fund is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the discovery of new knowledge in urban forestry and arboriculture (the science of caring for trees in a landscape).

The TREE Fund manages a portfolio of scholarships and education grants to engage and support the next generation of tree stewards, as well as research grants to improve the science, safety and practice of arboriculture.

Since 1992, the Tour has raised more than $7.1 million for tree research, scholarships, and education programs. The 2014 amount raised was more than $539,000 as of August 21, according to the event site at stihltourdestrees.org.

The TREE Fund has funded more than 400 research grants since 1976 focused on arboriculture, urban forestry, and the safety of the tree care workforce.

Every STIHL Tour des Trees includes tree plantings, educational programs, and community engagement activities. Each year, the Tour cycles through a different location in North America. Recent Tours have traveled through Wisconsin, Canada, New York, and the Pacific Northwest.
