Cultivate a cleaner environment, safer communities, and healthier lives by planting trees.
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 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.
RUFF works with the City of Roseville’s Mitigation Fund to provide trees for publicly owned properties in Roseville. RUFF provides advice on the best trees for the location and how to properly plant tree, arranges the logistics and the City provides funding.
