Street trees through Our City Forest

San Jose's Our City Forest program is still alive and kicking. This nonprofit may be able to help you obtain a tree for your park strip, the area between the sidewalk and the street. Permits are required to plant trees, but the permits are free. If you live next to someone who doesn't have a tree, you might want to open the conversation about the benefits of having one.

If enough of us are interested, we can try to work with Our City Forest for a neighborhood planting effort in the spring. Kim Karcher has volunteered to coordinate that effort, so email her at if you are interested in a tree or helping with this effort.

Read more about Our City Forest on their web site.
