In just the first two weeks of our Trees for Future Generations campaign, many wonderful Alamo Square neighbors donated over $37,000!
Since 2011, more than 60 trees have died, and in time, other trees will die too. We think it makes sense to replant the trees when they die off, but unfortunately the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department doesn’t budget money to do that. A tree dies, and its not replaced–it’s been going like that for years.
Today we have a unique opportunity: while the park is closed ASNA and SFRPD can buy, plant, and establish the trees that will be in the park for the generations to come. This will benefit the overall health of our park, and ultimately our neighborhood.
ASNA has pledged $50,000 in a dollar-for-dollar matching grant program to buy and plant new trees in Alamo Square while the park is closed for irrigation and restroom renovation.
