She’ll ply the pedals for the trees

Julia Bartens, a Davis resident and UC Davis employee working in urban forestry, plans to ride her bicycle 585 miles in seven days in August to raise funds for the TREE Fund (www.treefund.org). The TREE Fund is a charitable trust that supports research and education to benefit arboriculture and urban forestry.

“We all take trees for granted and we ignore sometimes just how important they are and what all they offer,” Bartens said in a news release. “There’s a lot that needs to be done to optimize urban tree growth and health and increase the proper use of trees to optimize all these benefits; cleaner air, cleaner water, shade/cooling, reduced crime and so forth.”

This will be Bartens’ first cycling fundraiser.

“I enjoy exercising especially in the great, wide open,” she said. “This event will be the most challenging thing I will have ever done, mentally and physically, and I’m looking forward to it.”

In order to ride, Bartens needs to raise $3,500. All proceeds go directly to the TREE Fund; the riders receive no compensation. This year, about 100 riders will ride the challenge route around Portland.

“It will be a beautiful ride with some very challenging hills but it is for a wonderful cause and I will get to meet great people along the way,” Bartens said.

The ride takes place just before the annual conference of the International Society of Arboriculture in Portland. The society is an association of tree care professionals and supporters.
