People choose Mississauga for its connected, vibrant outdoor public spaces, memorable experiences and recognize it as a leader in natural environment stewardship.
An urban forest is part of a healthy city and sustainable community. With approximately two million trees located on public and private land, Mississauga's urban forest is a valuable asset.
The Forestry Section maintains boulevard grass on City property next to main roads. Residents help keep our neighbourhoods neat and tidy by maintaining and cutting the small area of grass between the roadway and the front and side of their home.
The parks and other natural features are important contributors to the city's physical and environmental health, social well-being and quality of life today and for future generations.
Maintenance & Inspections
There are approximately one million trees located on public land and 250,000 of those are located on City boulevards. If the City-owned tree adjacent to your home has been inspected and maintenance work is required, an inspection notice outlining works required will be left at your home.
Street Tree Planting
Trees are planted to provide beauty and shade, help improve air quality and add economic value to your neighbourhood. Trees are carefully chosen for your neighbourhood based on the tree's function, the intended location and the soil conditions.
