What is Riding For Research?
People from all over the country volunteer to ride their bicycles through different parts of the United States and sometimes in other countries too. Some trips are 500 miles long.
They plant trees and raise money to help tree research scientists find ways to make trees grow stronger and healthier in urban (city) forests.
Professor Arbor E. Tum is proud of all the good people and hard work done by the Tour des Trees fundraisers -- ISA, The Tree Fund, STIHL Tour des Trees and the Professor’s special friend, Environmental Entertainer, Tim Womick.
The cyclers earned their Green Hearts riding for research!
Good Luck to all the future riders!
Here are some of the places the Professor visited!!
