Friends of the Urban Forest Overview
Programs: Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) planted its first tree on Arbor Day, 1981. Since then, we have planted 42,000 ten-foot tall street trees along the sidewalks of every San Francisco neighborhood. This is over 40% of San Francisco's street trees more than the entirety found in Golden Gate Park. Each year, FUF?s staff works with a network of community volunteers to plant a minimum of 1,000 ten-foot tall trees along the sidewalks of neighborhoods around San Francisco and care for and maintain approximately 3,000 trees. Education is essential to our mission, and we are committed to nurturing a new generation of urban foresters. Our Youth Tree Care Program, now in its twelfth year, has trained over 300 at-risk youth from San Francisco's most economically underserved communities in tree care and maintenance. Through three 142-hour sessions each year, our youth program, which offers its participants a living wage, combines field experience with skills they will need to have a competitive edge in today's crowded job market.
