The City is committed to protecting and conserving its urban tree canopy. 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 a natural habitat for wildlife, encourage active living and reduce exposure to certain environmental risks. Learn more about the City’s Urban Forest Management Plan.
