Community tree plantings help the City enhance the tree canopy throughout Mississauga neighbourhoods. These types of initiatives enhance and preserve the city’s tree canopy while empowering local residents to care for trees. The City works with various community groups and organizations including the Lisgar Resident’s Association to co-ordinate community tree planting events like the annual One Million Trees: Trick or Trees.

One Million Trees Mississauga
One Million Trees was launched to help enhance the city’s open spaces and conserve forested areas for future generations to enjoy. Trees are planted by City staff, partners and volunteers on public and private property. The One Million Trees goal is to add one million trees to Mississauga by 2032.

The City is committed to growing and regularly maintaining all City-owned trees on streets, in parks and woodlots.
