The San Francisco Forest

San Francisco is a beautiful city to live in, famous for its Victorian houses, the Pyramid Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. But did you know San Francisco contains a beautiful forest as well? San Francisco's forest is an urban forest and is made up of all the trees and other vegetation or plants found throughout the city. In addition to trees in our parks and back yards, there are about 100,000 trees along our streets. That may sound like a lot of street trees, but actually there is space for twice as many!
