Make sure to post screenshots of your cities with the mod enabled in the comments ;)


Replaces all trees on decorated roads, parks and building plots with palm trees.


You can change the tree types and the buildings/roads in the configuration file.


This is just a visual mod! You can load an existing save, and it will replace the trees. You can also still load your save files after disabling/uninstalling this mod. It will not break your save files.


Known Bugs and Limitations

  • When you load an existing city from the main menu, and zoom far away, the game will display the default tree models.

    Workaround: Press ESC after the city is loaded to open the "Pause Menu". Press "Load Game" and reload the city.

  • Replacement with palm trees only works on tropical maps.
  • Replacement with pine/conifer trees only works on nordic maps.
  • No support for custom tree models.
  • Does not replace trees on custom assets from the workshop


Enable the mod and create/load a city. The Mod will create the default configuration file.


Open the configuration file located at "[steam-install-directory]\SteamApps\common\Cities_Skylines\TreeReplacer.xml" with an editor (e.g. Notepad). Edit the values as you please:

replace_[tree-name]_with       - The replacement tree for the tree with name [tree-name].

removeUglyDirtUnderTrees       - removes the dirt texture that is visible under trees (works only if you load the city twice)

PS: The code of this mod is so messy, don't use it as a learning ressource ;)
