Urban Forest Friends started out as the Tri City Urban Forest Alliance (TUFA) and was founded in January 2019. We advocate for a strong, vibrant Urban Forest Program for the Tri-Cities. We work closely with the City of Fremont and City of Newark as they develop their Urban Forest Program. We are a branch of Tri-City Ecology Center, a well respected, environmental non-profit, for over 40 years, serving our Tri-Cities.

Our Goal

Our goal is to increase the tree canopy in the Tri-Cities through tree planting and tree care, community outreach and education and through advocacy.
