Policy for Urban Forestry

Environmental policy and legislation in San Francisco

Trees are a vital component of the ecosystem - especially in a city. They filter stormwater, reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases, help save energy, increase property values, provide wildlife habitat, improve public safety, and benefit human health. San Francisco’s urban forest includes about 669,000 trees, covering 12 percent of the City's surface area.
