Trees fight climate change, improve air quality, control storm water runoff, reduce noise pollution, add beauty, and boost happiness.

OUR IMPACT

Since 1981, we have planted more than 60,000 street trees, almost half of San Francisco’s street tree canopy. We water 500 trees every week, plant and care for 300 trees every month, and replace 10,000sq ft. of concrete with soil every year.
