Start a green holiday tradition!

Reduce your carbon footprint and increase San Francisco's tree canopy by fostering a living tree for your holiday celebrations. 

Green Holiday Trees are future San Francisco street trees that are grown and planted by Friends of the Urban Forest. After they green your holidays, they will provide environmental benefits in San Francisco by capturing carbon, cleaning the air, reducing stormwater runoff, and providing wildlife habitat.

Please note: This program is only available to residents and businesses in San Francisco.

What: 3'-6' tall non-traditional holiday trees that are appropriate for San Francisco's climate.

Price: $95 tax-deductible donation to Friends of the Urban Forest.

When/Where:  Visit the FUF website for all the details.
