The Urban Forest Map is a collaboration of government, nonprofits, businesses and city residents to map every tree in San Francisco. The map calculates the environmental benefits provided by the urban forest, including how many gallons of stormwater are filtered, how many pounds of air pollutants are captured, how many kilowatt-hours of energy conserved, and how many tons of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere.
This information helps urban foresters and city planners to better manage trees in specific areas, track and combat tree pests and diseases, and plan future tree plantings. Climatologists can use it to better understand the effects of urban forests on climates, and students and citizen scientists can use it to learn about the role trees play in the urban ecosystem.
The mission of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Urban Forestry Program is to lead the effort to advance the development of sustainable urban and community forests in California.Learn more at the Calfire website.

Friends of the Urban Forest
Each year, Friends of the Urban Forest helps communities plant nearly 1,000 trees. Neighbors organize the plantings.
