“At the City’s annual Earth Day Breakfast today, Mayor Mark Farrell committed San Francisco to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, a move that will eliminate the City’s carbon footprint.
Mayor Farrell also announced that funding will be included in his upcoming budget for the City to commit to planting 2,000 new trees in the next two years. Trees absorb excess carbon dioxide—a major cause of climate change—and store the carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air. Mayor Farrell’s goal of planting 1,000 new trees annually will help the City get closer to reaching its emissions free future.”
