Urban Tree Species Directory

This is a directory of the tree species that are most likely to thrive as street trees in San Francisco.

Because San Francisco has a variety of micro-climates and conditions, the location of your property is a big factor in choosing a suitable tree. A tree that thrives in the Mission neighborhood, for example, may not thrive in the Sunset.

Click any species below to see photos and detailed information about it. Use the Tree Sorter at right to show tree species that match your preferences or that are suited to certain conditions.
