Friends of the Urban Forest has suspended our community planting activities until it’s safe to resume them, but we’re still working to advance our mission.
Please join us in creating a resilient, healthier and sustainable future for San Francisco by sponsoring a future tree planting, providing needed funds to continue our operations and continue greening this city for all residents and generations to come.
FUF is currently offering virtual engagement events for your team to stay connected and engaged.
Possible sponsored virtual event themes:
- Fireside chat with FUF’s Executive Director & your Founder/CEO or CSR leader
- LIVE SF Street Tree Tour with FUF’s Education Manager
- Urban Forestry & Climate Action
- Bioblitz your Block (learn about the trees around your neighborhood)
- Sidewalk Landscaping 101
- A History of San Francisco’s Urban Forest (including famous SF natives)
- Right Tree, Right Place (how we select tree species)
Please contact Aine Kimsey (email@example.com) for more information.
FUF coordinates volunteer workdays for corporate groups of between 5 and 30 people. These workdays are a fun opportunity for groups to engage in team-building and fulfillment of corporate social responsibility goals while benefiting the environment.
Our weekday opportunities for Corporate Workdays happen in conjunction with the installation of Sidewalk Gardens, which typically run from Thursday through Saturday about once a month (9am-1pm). You can choose which day works best for your team.
We have more frequent opportunities for Corporate Workdays on Saturdays in conjunction with Neighborhood Tree Plantings, which happen twice a month. These events run from 9am-1pm and we provide coffee/pastries in the morning. Note: we usually need to break groups up into mini-groups of about 4-5 people for Tree Plantings.
Check our Events Calendar for the dates of upcoming events.
A small donation for all corporate volunteer planting events is requested so we may continue this important greening work for the San Francisco community.
