Why am I getting a free tree?
Thanks to new city tree care policies, FUF is funded to bring new trees to select neighborhoods. We are working with local neighborhood groups, homeowners, and corridor ambassadors to plant as many trees as possible to provide public health and traffic calming benefits.
- Trees are free for you
- FUF will prune your tree for the first 5 years; after that the City will prune it
- You can choose your tree species from a menu
- The city will take over watering of your tree
Am I responsible for the tree?
San Francisco’s tree care policies have improved. The City of San Francisco will maintain all street trees, repair all tree-related sidewalk damage in the public right-of-way, and assume liability for harm to people or property caused by neglect of such maintenance or repairs. You should keep your tree watered so that it can stay healthy and reach maturity.
What you should do:
September 16 — volunteers and neighbors come together to plant trees and enjoy a community lunch
If you have questions and would like to stay informed, call us at 415-268-0772 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to choose your tree species, take a look at the Portola Species List. This is a matrix of tree species that are suitable for specific sites based on street orientation (which corresponds to wind exposure – east-west streets get more wind), presence of overhead utility lines, and sidewalk width.
