Storm Recovery & Tree Management
Storm Recovery Update (October 2, 2014)
City of Mississauga has completed tree and debris removal and clean-up. City contracted crews have now started to remove stumps.
Before crews begin, all areas have to be checked for underground cables and pipes. Utility companies will repair any problems resulting from stump removal.
Once the tree stumps are removed, the ground will be repaired with topsoil and reseeded as weather permits. Trees removed during the winter months will be stumped and the ground repaired the following spring.
For more information call 3-1-1 (905-615-4311 if outside city limits) weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In the event of an after-hours emergency, please call 905-615-3000.
The City is preparing a plan to replace trees on public property. Priority will be given to residential streets, arterial roads, parks and woodlots. The residential areas that were hardest hit, such as losing the majority of the trees on their street, will be at the top of the list to receive replacement trees.
The total number of trees and the replanting schedule has not been determined. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
NOTE: It is NOT necessary to report that the street tree in front of your house was removed due to the Ice Storm. We have a record of each tree and the goal is to replace each of these trees where possible.
What can you do to help replace our lost tree canopy? Residents and businesses are welcome to participate in neighbourhood planting projects. Visit onemilliontrees.ca for more information.
