Planting Fund-Raising Seeds

The Stihl Tour des Trees, as the cycling event is known, has raised more than $5-million in the past two decades for the Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund, in Naperville, Ill. That money accounts for almost three-quarters of the budget of the charity, which is dedicated to financing studies on the best ways to care for trees in cities and then spreading the word about the findings.
