What does the community tree planting program include?

  • Your tree is planted at no cost to you (including concrete removal).
  • You can choose your tree from a list of city-approved options.
  • You can be part of the process: help plant your tree and work with your neighbors to determine the future look and feel of your neighborhood.
  • StreetTreeSF is responsible for pruning mature street trees and repairing tree-related sidewalk damage. Click here for details.

Why should I request a street tree?

Street trees provide you, your neighbors, and all San Franciscans with many benefits:

What if there’s already an empty tree basin adjacent to my property?

You’re required to plant a tree in the basin unless it doesn’t comply with city code (if you’re unsure, we can advise you). Take this opportunity to get a new tree with FUF and choose the species. Click here to request a new tree for your empty basin, or click here to learn more about our process for planting “replacement” trees in empty basins.
