What’s New in Version 2.0?

You’ll notice that the Urban Forest Map is looking quite different! In the six years since we launched the first version of the Map, there have been big changes in technology (imagine—at that time there were no smart phones!), and we’re ready to incorporate them into our software. Here’s some of what you can expect.


New look

The new version of the Map uses “responsive design” tools, so it changes to suit the screen you’re using–phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. The way you add or edit trees has been streamlined too, for fewer clicks.


New functions

Now you can do more than add and edit trees. New features allow you to track stewardship by logging the trees you’ve watered, pruned, or mulched and to map your sidewalk garden to track the stormwater benefits it’s providing.


New data

San Francisco’s first ever citywide street tree census, EveryTree SF, kicked off in January 2016.  Tree specialists are identifying the exact location, species and current condition of every street tree and finding vacant spots where new trees can go. We’re publishing that data on the Map as it comes in.

What about the trees I added in version 1.0?

Don’t worry! Your work is greatly appreciated, and we’ve preserved all the data entered by our users. We’ll be returning that information to the new version of the Map as soon as possible. And we hope you’ll keep contributing!

Please note that since we’ve switched to a new platform, you’ll need to create a new account before adding or editing trees.
