Free Trees for South Sioux Residents

Free Trees for South Sioux City Residents


The City of South Sioux City, supported by the Arbor Day Foundation’s Community Tree Recovery program and the Peter Kiewit Foundation, will give away 100 trees this spring. This exciting tree giveaway will allow residents to plant the trees in city-owned rights-of-way, planting trees between the sidewalk and street. This will help to ensure shady, scenic, healthier neighborhoods while conserving energy. Residents will be responsible for planting and watering their tree. If interested in receiving a free tree, please respond by sending or emailing your name, address, email, phone to or send to: Gene Maffit, Parks Director, 1615 1st Avenue, South Sioux City, NE 68776 or call Rec Dept. at 402-494-7535. Tree pick up is set for May 7th from 9am to 12 noon at the Community Orchard, 1500 E. 17th Street, South Sioux City.
