Sunnyside, Glen Park & Mt. Davidson residents can get new trees on your street this summer. Neighborhood Launch event on July 7th!
Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) is a non-profit organization that helps San Francisco residents get new trees on their blocks, and covers most of the costs. They have planted over 50k trees in San Francisco, but we still have more work to do!
In partnership with the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association (SNA) and the Monterey Heights Homes Association, FUF is launching a community tree planting happening throughout the Sunnyside, Glen Park & Mt. Davidson area this September –– and FUF has raised money to subsidize tree planting for local residents! FUF can help you plant a tree in the sidewalk or yard in front of your home AND will come back for 3 – 5 years of follow-up tree care.
FUF is hosting a community Happy Hour for on Thursday July 7th to launch all this. We will provide wine and cheese and discuss how you can get more trees on your street, maybe even in front of your house. The event will be at SNA President Steve Martinpinto’s house at 429 Melrose Ave, 6:30pm – 7:30pm, 7/7/16. Would love to see you there! Feel free to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you already know you are interested in getting a tree, sign up now for a free, no-obligation site visit. The deadline to get on the list is August 3rd, 2016!
