2016 Annual Urban Forest Report

Management of San Francisco’s urban forest is divided among many stakeholders who provide direct care to trees within their jurisdiction, as well as nonprofit organizations who engage with agency partners to support forestry activities on city-owned land. SF Environment staff surveyed 21 City departments, public agencies, and non-government organizations that oversee or manage a portion of the urban forest in San Francisco. Organizations were asked to provide information on forestry budget and staffing, maintenance activities, accomplishments, and concerns in fiscal year 2015-2016. Of the 21 organizations surveyed, 19 provided full or partial responses.
