Mississauga’s Urban Forest is important to the city’s environmental, social and economic wellbeing. The city’s 2.1 million trees help to filter pollution, increase shade, provide natural habitat for wildlife, encourage active living and reduce exposure to certain environmental risks. Learn more about the City’s Urban Forest Management Plan.
National Forest Week is observed annually during the last full week of September (Sunday through Saturday). To learn more about Mississauga’s National Forest Week event or to RSVP, visit: onemilliontrees.ca.
This National Forest Week event is part of TD Tree Days, a program of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
National Forest Week runs from September 18 to 24 across Canada. It is a dedicated week where Canadian’s can learn more about trees and raise awareness about the value forests play within our economy, culture, traditions, history and future.
As TD's flagship urban greening program, TD Tree Days provides TD employees and their families, customers and community partners the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in environmental stewardship in their local communities. Visit tdtreedays.com for more information on the program.
