Friends of the Urban Forest Ensure Trees Live on After the Holidays

Why do we embrace living trees into our homes for Christmas, only to kill them after the holidays have passed? Now, with the Friends of the Urban Forest and SF environment project, the residents of San Francisco don't have to worry about this contradictory tradition.

Friends of the Urban Forest and SF Environment have teamed up on a project to offer San Francisco residents living, local, potted Christmas trees that will be replanted after the holiday season. The trees are non-traditional (an understatement, as they hardly look like Christmas trees at all), meaning that they will be able to survive the San Francisco climate.
