Happy Earth Day to all of our global citizens!

In recognition of #EarthDay, we invite you to take action and help to #RestoreOurEarth.

One vital resource for the well-being of our planet, and ourselves, is trees. Trees are like the lungs of the earth; without their leaves, they actually look similar to lungs!

Benefits of trees:

  • Ecological services: improved soil and water conservation, carbon storage, temperature regulation by providing shade, homes and food for local wildlife.
  • Financial savings: trees help reduce energy costs in the winter by providing protection from strong winter winds as well as increasing property value with increased “curb appeal”.
  • Health benefits: trees create a relaxing environment allowing people to commune with nature as well as increasing air quality by filtering out many airborne pollutants such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulphur dioxide and particulates.

Why not plant a tree today?

The City of Mississauga has a goal of planting 1,000,000 trees by 2032 and to help in reaching this amazing goal, they are offering residents FREE trees!
