Outer Richmond Community Tree Planting || September – November 2021
Friends of the Urban Forest is planting trees in the Outer Richmond. You can be part of the process! Choose your tree and work with your neighbors to determine the future look and feel of your neighborhood.
Due to the citywide shelter-in-place order, Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) paused tree planting in your neighborhood. We are pleased to let you know that we are now able to safely and legally resume.
Our staff will be planting trees in your neighborhood from May to June. You may see small groups of FUF staff working in the area. While we’d normally love for you to greet us or join the planting, we ask that you do not approach or talk with FUF staff in-person to protect both your health and ours. If you see FUF staff outside and would like to discuss the planting, please call Jesus at 415.500.1956 or email email@example.com. We’ll be available and eager to speak with you. Please feel free to give us a wave from your window if you’d like to show your support!
Here’s what comes with your new tree:
- The tree will be planted at no cost to you
- You can choose your tree from a list of city-approved options
- Public Works will water your new tree
- Once your tree has established (typically takes 3-4 years) it will be cared for and pruned by StreetTreeSF, the citywide street tree maintenance program. See details at sfpublicworks.org/streetreesf
