RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. San Franciscans this year can give their city a Christmas present - the tree. The city, along with Friends of the Urban Forest, is selling potted trees which after all the Christmas ornaments are taken down can be left on the street for pickup and planting. The spindly young trees aren't terribly traditional. One is a southern magnolia. But presumably the holiday spirit can be found in celebrating a greener Christmas. You're listening to Morning Edition.
