Tree Permit

A tree permit is required if you are planting a tree in the right-of-way (between the curb and the sidewalk).  Before planting a tree, the homeowner must fill out an application for approval and call South Dakota One Call for utility locations prior to planting.  The cost is $10.00 per tree. The reason for this is to make sure trees are planted in accordance with Ordinance 13-1-16.  Trees cause issues if they are planted to close to property lines, utilities, sidewalks, fire hydrants, street lights and more.  We want to make sure when planted, trees are in the right locations.
