City of Sturgis Reminds Residents to Trim Trees


News Release - August 21, 2019

STURGIS, S.D. - The Public Works and Code Enforcement Departments reminds residents to check trees and shrubs to make sure they aren't encroaching into streets and sidewalks.

City ordinance requires trees to be trimmed to a minimum of 12 feet over city streets and at least 8 feet over public sidewalks. 

Bushes and low hanging limbs not only pose a danger to motorists when you can't see oncoming traffic but during periods of heavy snow, overhanging branches bend even lower, making it difficult for snowplows and other street equipment to operate effectively.

When branches break from snow weight or high winds, they can cause damage to power lines and can block streets and alleyways. Dead trees need to be removed immediately as they pose a very high risk of falling and causing damage to buildings, vehicles, and people.

Tree and shrub limbs need to be taken to the Exit 32 recycling center or the Rubble Site.  DO NOT place cut branches near your trash tote or in the alley - they will NOT be picked up by trash crews.
