City to Remove Select Trees from Parks

City to Remove Select Trees from Parks

          The Yankton City Commission recently authorized a plan to remove selected trees in the city’s parks over the next few years.

Each tree that made it on this schedule were determined by the city’s Tree Board that it is posing a hazard to the public due to its age or damage.

          Yankton Mayor, Stephane Moser, talks about why a tree plan is so important for Yankton…

          Yankton City Manager, Amy Leon, talks about some of the details of this plan…

          One of these trees is slated for removal in 2024 by a professional crew, with others to follow in the order of their hazard level.

          The replacement trees may be planted before or after the removal of the old tree, and may be in different locations on city property.
