Local arborist and Summerfield resident Tammy Kovar successfully completed a 585-mile bicycle ride through Oregon to raise funds for tree research.
Kovar participated Aug. 5 through Aug. 11 in the Tour des Trees, hosted by the Tree Research & Education Endowment Fund, an organization committed to support sustainable communities and environmental stewardship by funding research, scholarships and education programs pertaining to the fields of arboriculture and urban forestry.
“It was a life experience,” she said. “I checked off one of my bucket-list items.”
