Friends of the Urban Forest renting live Christmas trees this holiday

SF Environment and the Friends of the Urban Forest have teamed up this holiday season to offer the community living Christmas trees.

For a $75 donation, residents can get a three-to six-foot Fern Pine, Japanese Blueberry, Catalina Ironwood, or Small-Leaf Tristania to decorate, eliminating the need for a pre-cut tree.

Trees can be picked up at Green Christmas Tree Lot on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. As an added perk, Friends of the Urban Forest will pick your tree up from you for a small fee once the holidays are over. Information on pick-ups can be found on the Adopt a Living Tree website.

All trees loaned out to the community will then be planted by Friends of the Urban Forest on San Francisco’s streets.
