How does the planting process work?
In collaboration with neighborhood residents, we organize a tree planting in each neighborhood about once every 18 months.  On planting day, FUF staff, volunteers and residents plant trees for everyone in that neighborhood who wants one. We celebrate with a potluck lunch afterwards!

Why should I plant a FUF tree at my property? 
Trees provide benefits such as cleaning the air, preventing flooding, and raising your property value. FUF is a nonprofit that has planted more than 50,000 trees during 1,000 +community plantings in SF.

Want to choose your tree?

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.

  • Is your tree on an east-west street?
  • Are there overhead high voltage wires above your sidewalk?
  • Is your sidewalk wide enough to accommodate a larger or more spreading tree?

Have questions?  Email info@fuf.net to connect with one of our certified arborists who can help you pick out a tree that’s right for you.

You may start to notice chalk markings on sidewalks where trees would go.

We celebrate all our plantings with volunteers and neighbors by organizing a potluck at each event!
