Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
Trees and birds are an important foundation of our ecosystem. Urban environments are very hard on trees and we need to better understand how to support their survival. It’s a fundamental part of mitigating climate change.

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
I am riding the 2017 STIHL Tour des Trees because I understand the importance of trees for our environment and importantly, to raise monies for tree research and tree education programs. I am excited to be a part of the Tour des Trees 25th Anniversary ride this year. It is going to be a great ride!

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
The Tour is a true expression of passion; an enthusiasm for cycling, an obsession with trees and the urban forest and a perennial eagerness to meet up with good friends who are all seemingly excited to encounter the daily challenges Mr. Wood confronts us with. Looking forward to more lumps and bumps.

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
Trees and bikes are a great combination. Combine them again with tree research and the ride becomes the best way that I can imagine to have fun and to contribute to the world.

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
This will be my 9th consecutive Tour and I’m riding to raise funds for research and education which will benefit America’s trees by solving their current and future problems. I’m also riding because there is no better way of seeing this country than from the seat of a bicycle. I enjoy getting reacquainted with my fellow arborists and friends discussing tree health care issues and catching up.
