“Do you see any “dead trees” or “empty tree wells” on the sidewalks? Would you like to see more trees or small gardens planted in your neighborhood? Tree Planting on Russian Hill is coordinated in cooperation with Friends of The Urban Forest. Trees and gardens are planted at no cost to homeowners.
Homeowners and/or “renters” can apply for new trees, replacement trees, and even small sidewalk gardens to be installed at no cost to homeowners. Applicants are asked to commit to arranging weekly watering of the new plantings until they are established.
37 new trees were planted on Russian Hill in 2018.
It is hoped that there will be another new tree planting in 2019. For questions regarding trees, contact Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) https://www.fuf.net/ or the SFDPW Urban Forestry division https://www.sfpublicworks.org/trees.
