Hello ‘Friends of the Urban Forest’ organizers and tree planters –
Organizing for tree planting is going extraordinarily well throughout the city! In the next few months OMI, SOMA, Castro, Central + Outer Sunset, North Bernal, Crocker Amazon, and Glen Park are in contention for a coveted community planting date in their neighborhood. Can you help organize your neighbors for a planting? Let me know!
Glen Park is coming along nicely, and currently has 13 trees out of 30 trees
We may combine the Glen Park with neighboring Sunnyside/Miraloma and/or Noe Valley South to get to that 30 number faster – stay tuned!
Can you help create the necessary demand? In so doing you will create a legacy right here in our “front yards” — one that can be enjoyed by yourself and the children and grandchildren of the neighborhood. And at just $75 for the tree and periodic maintenance for 3 years the price is a real bargain.
Research shows that trees increase property values, help the environment and improve our quality of life in many ways. So please plant a tree in front of your house or talk with neighbors or local business about planting one (or two) in front of their property! If you know the owner of a site that could plant several trees please let me know — we would love to help them start reaping the benefits of having trees. Plantings are fun and literally bring neighborhoods together.
