What We Do

Roseville Urban Forest Foundation (RUFF) is a 501C3, non-profit organization formed to improve the tree canopy in the Roseville California area through tree plantings and education on the value of trees and how to grow them.

The RUFF Board of Directors consists of local residents who value the benefits that trees bring to our community.

We have benefited from working with volunteer groups from Hewlett Packard Sustainability Group, Rotary, REI, neighborhood associations, local high schools and Sierra College.



Arbor Day

Arbor Day is when people all over the world come together to plant and appreciate the beauty and contributions of trees to their community. In Roseville, we usually team up with the City of Roseville and a local school to plant some trees and provide fun activities for the kids. Past Arbor Day trees grace many of the schools and parks in Roseville.

California celebrates Arbor Day in March rather than in April because our ground doesn’t freeze in the winter and we have an earlier spring than many states.


Library Book Project

We have been giving tree and nature books to public school libraries in Roseville for seven years. We choose books that promote understanding and appreciation of the importance of trees and their place in the natural world.


Celebrate the Earth Festival

The 9th Annual Celebrate the Earth Festival will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center in Mahany Regional Park. It’s time to get involved!
