Did you know Mississauga has more than two million trees on public and private land? Our urban forest is important to the health and quality of life in the city. There are economic and environmental benefits to an urban forest, including absorbing pollution, saving energy, managing stormwater and adding beauty to our neighbourhoods.
The city’s urban forest includes trees, shrubs and the soils that support them. The City is committed to growing and regularly maintains all city-owned trees on streets, in parks and woodlots. This is achieved with regular maintenance of trees, the street tree planting program and the One Million Trees program.
Join the City of Mississauga and Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) to celebrate Mississauga’s urban forest.
Activities will include a tree planting in the Rattray Marsh hosted by CVC, a guided walk by LEAF (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) that highlights the interesting trees and natural features of the park and Rattray Marsh.
