Get a living, potted Christmas tree!
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. For a tax-deductible 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, 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, such as Fern Pine and Australian Willow.
The price is $75 per tree for members of Friends of the Urban Forest, and $95 for the general public. We’ll start taking orders again in November, 2020.
Ordering for your office? See “Corporate Package” below.
While enjoying your Green Christmas Tree at your home or office, please care for it as described here.

“Green” your office holiday celebrations with a pop-up urban forest! We’ll provide living, potted, future street trees for you to decorate and display in your lobby or reception area, conference room, or break room. We’ll pick them up after the holidays and plant them in a San Francisco neighborhood that needs more trees. For details contact Aine at 415-525-8383 or by email with this contact form.
