We have a community planting scheduled for May 13, 2017!
What do I need to do to get a tree?
FUF aims to make it easy and affordable for you to get a street tree in San Francisco. We usually subsidize about 75% of the costs and handle most of the logistics. You only need to sign our two forms and we will take it from there. This year, you only need to select your co-pay, sliding scale from $135-$500 (your choice) and we’ll plant a tree with you in the sidewalk in front of your home AND come back for 3-years of follow-up care.
***Forms Deadline is 03/29/2017***
***Forms Deadline EXTENDED to 04/05/2017***
How does the planting process work?
In collaboration with neighborhood residents, we organize a tree planting in each neighborhood about once every 18 months. On planting day, FUF staff, volunteers and residents plant trees for everyone in that neighborhood who wants one. We celebrate with a potluck lunch afterwards!
Why should I plant a FUF tree at my property?
Trees provide benefits such as cleaning the air, preventing flooding, and raising your property value. FUF is a nonprofit that has planted more than 47,000 trees during 1,000 +community plantings in SF.
