Street Tree SF

San Francisco residents no longer have to take responsibility for the upkeep of street trees in front of their homes. The city now puts aside $19 million a year for upkeep of the trees and to fix tree-related damage to sidewalks, thanks to Proposition E, which 79 percent of voters supported in the November 2016 election.

“It is long past time that the city relieved homeowners of the responsibility to fix trees that are on our public streets,” said District 8 Supervisor Jeff Sheehy, who helped roll out the Street Tree SF program in mid-July. He said the program “supports the will of the voters and will help maintain a healthy urban tree canopy that will enhance and protect our urban environment.”

Details on the program are available at
