To help San Francisco transition to a cleaner future, we're asking SF residents to get involved in planting trees in the month of February. Trees provide life-giving oxygen to our planet and remove pollution from the air. In its lifetime, one tree can process up to a ton of carbon (the equivalent of the CO2 emissions from 102 gallons of gasoline), sequestering the carbon from the air and replenishing the soil. Tree roots hold soil in place and reduce erosion. Now is a great time to participate in the many programs around the city to grow trees in our streets, public spaces, and yards.
Here are some options we have for February. Sign up and join us in transition action towards sustainability!
 
- Participate in the greening of our public spaces through the Street Parks program: http://www.sfpt.org/OurPrograms/CommunityGreening/tabid/86/Default.aspx
 
 
- Collaborate with your neighbors and FUF, Friends of the Urban Forest, to plant trees in your neighborhood: http://www.fuf.net/treePlanting/index.html
 
 
- Plant a tree (or two or three or...) in your own back yard: http://www.kitchengardensf.org/about
 
 
- Volunteer at a local urban farm and learn more about trees in the process: San Francisco Farms
 
 
- Join in one of the many Tree Planting events happening around the city this month: http://www.fuf.net/about/calendar.html
