When Friends of the Urban Forest was founded in 1981 we set out on a mission to grow San Francisco’s urban forest. Since then we have planted more than 60,000 street trees.
Today, FUF continues to promote a larger, healthier urban forest through community planting, tree care, education, and advocacy. By investing in FUF’s programs you are creating a better city for generations to come. Every gift, no matter the size, makes an impact.
