New Trees May Be Planted in Glen Park Soon

By Bonnee Waldstein

At the summer meeting of the Glen Park Association last Thursday, president Michael Rice announced that Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF), which works with neighborhoods to increase street tree planting in San Francisco, will have a tree-planting day in September. The area will encompass the neighborhoods of Glen Park, Miraloma, and Mt. Davidson.

FUF accepts requests for tree planting on frontages of a minimum of 6-1/2 feet. They evaluate the sidewalk for suitability. The cost is a sliding scale of $300-$500, with a minimum of $135. This covers the cost to open the sidewalk, install the tree, and maintain it on an on-call basis for three to five years.

The application deadline is in August.
