Green Christmas Trees

Girl beside decorated holiday tree “Green” your holiday celebrations by adopting a future street tree.

We’re not yet accepting orders for Christmas 2019, but we will soon!

In partnership with the San Francisco Department of the Environment and Hayes Valley Art Works, Friends of the Urban Forest offers living, potted Christmas trees in November and December each year. 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, and we’ll use it in our Neighborhood Tree Planting program.

Our Green Christmas Trees are better for the environment than traditional dead trees.  They reduce waste and post-holiday litter — and once they’re planted on the streets of San Francisco, they’ll provide benefits for generations. We offer species that are popular choices for beautifying the streets of San Francisco.
