National Tree Planting Day kicked off last week on September 25, and in celebration, the City of Brampton planted 100 trees.

The city, in partnership with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), planted 100 trees at Centennial Park.

National Tree Day in Canada is a meaningful way to recognize the positive impact that trees have on our lives and a celebration of all that they have to offer, from cleaning the air to providing wildlife habitation.

The City of Brampton and its partners have planted an average of approximately 42,000 trees annually over the last five years. As a Green City, the city says it’s committed to protecting green spaces and working towards a goal of planting one million trees in Brampton by 2040.
