Free Trees, Pruning & Sidewalk Repair For The Portola

The city has changed its policy on street trees due to the passage of prop E last year. This means that the city now owns and maintains the trees.  Residents are no longer responsible for pruning and if the roots crack the sidewalk, the city will repair it at no cost to you (it’s about time). To encourage more environmentally beneficial street trees, the city is working with Friends of the Urban Forest. to plant free trees around the Portola.   Due to the current lack of trees in the neighborhood, the city & F.U.F. selected the Portola as its first neighborhood in the program.  160 free trees are coming this summer to help beautify and create a more inviting street atmosphere in the community.   If you are still on the fence about getting a tree, consider that your tax dollars are paying for it regardless so you might as reap the benefits (just our 2 cents though).

If you would like one in front of your home, please sign up HERE.  You can also contact Jasmine Lim at F.U.F. (contact on flyer above) with any questions about the program.
