Presenting San Francisco Urban Forest Map, v. 2.0
Seven years after our initial launch, we’re rolling out a new version of the San Francisco Urban Forest Map! You’ll notice a new look and new features, and perhaps most exciting, a whole lot of new data.
In 2016, San Francisco began our first-ever street tree census, EveryTreeSF, which wrapped up early in 2017. Tree experts spent months out on the streets identifying and measuring every tree and finding empty spots for new ones. The City of San Francisco had previously estimated its total street tree count at 105,000 street trees.* Now we know there are really nearly 125,000!
Some other things to look out for:
- A new, modern look. But it’s not just about looks: the new design is “responsive” so it will work on tablets and screens of all sizes.
- New features. You can track stewardship work (log when you water or mulch your tree) and soon you’ll be able to enter sidewalk gardens.
- Improved speed. We’ve updated the underlying technology and improved the workflow, so there are fewer clicks and faster loading.
For previous users of the Map: Because we’ve changed the platform, you’ll have to create a new account to start logging trees again. Rest assured, though, we’ve saved all the trees you added before and we’ll be adding them back to the Map once all the official data is in!
*Updated to reflect more accurate data provided by the City of SF.
