              Tree Planting on Russian Hill
              Sponsored by Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) and Russian Hill Neighbors.

      Do you know of a place that needs a tree?  Are you interested in planting a tree?  Call the RHN hotline at (415) 267-0575.  Since 1981, FUF has provided financial, technical, and practical assistance to San Franciscans for tree planting, tree care, community involvement, and youth education. FUF and the Tree Corps' partnership with the City has resulted in the planting of nearly 40,000 new trees in the past 25 years and the ongoing care of over 8,000 trees each year.  To find out the latest status and how you may help continue tree planting, click here for FUF's website.

    Fed up with Litter, Dumping, and/or Graffiti?

This really works! For complaints about litter, dumping, or graffiti, call 311 or go to the DPW home page ( and using the drop down menu on the left choose the subject and follow the instructions.   This can be much easier than waiting on hold for those who prefer to use the internet.
