Residential Tree Planting and Care

watering a tree


Trees on private property provide many benefits to residents, including reducing energy bills through shading from sun and protection from cool winds, reducing air and noise pollution, improving property value, and being aesthetically pleasing. 

The planting and care of trees on residential properties is also an important part of maintaining and improving Brampton's urban forest​. The One Million Trees Program identifies residential trees planting and care as an important consideration to achieving the goal of planting one million trees by 2040. 

The Residential Tree Program will provide resources, opportunities and initiatives that help and encourage residents to plant and care for trees on their properties.

This year, in celebration of the first Brampton Tree Month during September, Brampton residents were able to register to receive a free tree to plant on their property. As part of this Residential Tree Program initiative, over 1000 trees were given away to Brampton residents to plant on their property. Stay tuned for more future Residential Tree Program initiatives to participate in.
