To receive a tree, click on the links below, and print and complete both forms. If you don’t have a printer, we’ll gladly mail or fax the forms to you; just contact Caitlin by phone at 415-268-0772 or by email with our contact form.
Once you have completed BOTH forms, please give them to your volunteer Neighborhood Organizer or send them to Caitlin. We prefer you scan them or photograph them with a digital camera, and email the resulting files to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can send them via U.S. mail or by fax (see our address and fax number here).

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What if I’m not sure what type of tree I want?
A. You can leave that part of the forms blank. One of our arborists will discuss the options with you.
Q. What if I have an existing tree or a stump in the location where I want a new tree?
A. You must have it removed before we can plant.
Q. Am I making a financial commitment by submitting these forms? What if I change my mind?
A. You can withdraw your application, and owe nothing, by sending an email message to the planting manager up to two weeks before the scheduled planting date.
Q. When should I send in payment?
A. We’ll send you an invoice when payment is due.
Q. I’m a renter; can I submit the forms?
A. Someone other than the property owner can complete and submit the forms, and can be identified as the caretaker of the tree, but the property owner must sign the forms.
