Blizzard Tree Cleanup Continues In SD Months Later

Blizzard Tree Cleanup Continues In SD Months Later

More than five months after a blizzard slammed into western South Dakota, some communities are still working to clean up and repair trees.

The Belle Fourche City Council this week approved bids totaling $100,000 to complete tree branch cleanup around town and in a cemetery. Cleanup also is continuing in Spearfish, where city crews hope to plant about three dozen trees in the city park this spring.

Workers in Sturgis hope to finish pruning damaged trees in the next couple of weeks, before they begin to bud.

The two-day blizzard that hit Oct. 4 dumped as much as 4 feet of snow in the Black Hills, downing or damaging thousands of trees.
