In partnership with the San Francisco Department of the Environment, FUF offers living, potted Christmas trees in November and December each year. For a tax-deductible $75 donation, you get a beautiful, three-to-six-foot-tall, non-traditional tree to bring home for decoration and enjoyment.  Return the tree to us after the holidays (or have us pick it up at your home), and we’ll use it in our Neighborhood Tree Planting program.

We offer species that are popular choices for beautifying the streets of San Francisco, such as Primrose, Cork Oak, and Small Leaf Tristania.

Tree Pick-Up and Return

Pick up your tree at our Green Christmas Tree lot outside our office in the Presidio from 10am to 2pm on Saturday December 2, Saturday December 9, and Sunday December 17.  If those dates aren’t convenient for you, you can pick up your tree at our office on any weekday from November 27 through December 20 while supplies last (see our FAQ for times).

Returning your tree is easy! You can drop it off at our office after the holiday season is over or, for $25, we’ll come to your house to retrieve it.
