Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) helps individuals and neighborhood groups plant and care for street trees and sidewalk gardens in San Francisco. This “green infrastructure” improves the city by beautifying neighborhoods, cleaning the air, raising property values and reducing polluted storm water runoff. Since 1981, FUF has planted more than 50,000 trees, totaling 47% of the city's street tree canopy.
The Bridgemen will once again partake in planting trees, this time in the Mission district! FUF will supply tools and guidance. Please wear work clothes and bring water to stay hydrated. They will provide coffee and pastries in the morning, and the property owners will provide refreshments when the planting is done.
Please wear a Bridgemen T-shirt if you have one. If you don’t yet have a Bridgemen T-shirt, please tell Alex your T-shirt size BEFORE 5 PM, 08/17/18, so that I know to bring one for you.
