Trees are important to the environment, health and quality of life in our City.

mailing list iconOne Million Trees Mississauga was launched to help conserve and enhance the City’s open spaces and forested areas for future generations to enjoy. Trees will be planted by City staff, partners and volunteers on public and private property. Residents who plant a tree on their private residential property can add it to our tree planting total and have it count towards our One Million Trees goal.

In Mississauga, there are 2.1 million trees on both public and private lands. Help us add one million more by 2032.

            Choosing a species to plant
