Shouldn't the です be optional here?

In casual language, yes. However, in polite Japanese, which seems to be Duolingo's focus, every sentence that doesn't end in some form of -ます should end in です.

It seems around the point you finish the tree but it isn't golden is when casual speech gets mixed in with formal speech.
