Urban Tree Species Directory

This is a directory of the tree species that you are likely to see in San Francisco.

Not all of these trees are appropriate as street trees and FUF does not plants trees that will not thrive in the urban environment.

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.
