Trees are an important part of Sioux Falls’ landscape and ecosystem. They beautify our city, shade our homes, collect storm water and clean the air we all breathe.
As we are now faced with replacing more than 25 percent of our urban forest, it is critical we do not repeat past mistakes. We need to diversify our tree population by species and age. The Sioux Falls ReLeaf Project will help foster diversification as an effort to prevent future invasive species and tree disease.
If you are removing an ash tree from your parking strip and want to replant, please refer to the City's street tree permit process and recommended tree species list.
Check out the table below for detailed information about tree populations of each Sioux Falls park.
