Roseville Urban Forest Foundation

Trees Improve Our Community

RUFF is a non-profit that works in the Roseville, California area to bring the benefits of trees into our community. Please consider supporting RUFF by becoming a Founding Member in 2024.

Michelle Remembrance


Recently we lost Michelle Mahan who was a long term board member, volunteer and supporter of RUFF. She planted many trees, visited scores of residents with tree questions, developed our first website, and cheerfully helped out at events. Michelle graced us with her quiet and thoughtful manner that friends and associates admired, and will miss. Michelle never sought recognition for her efforts, knowing she had improved her community was enough for her.

RUFF is dedicating the April 13 planting to Michelle. We invite family and friends to join us at 8:30 a.m. to honor her and begin planting at 9:00 a.m. with our other volunteers. See "Upcoming Events" to register.
