Vision and Mission

We’re Tree Huggers!

Trees for Halton Hills is a new non-profit organization whose members promote tree care and planting – to beautify our Town, enhance biodiversity and reduce carbon and heat in the air we breathe.

Our Vision – A low carbon, green Halton Hills community which is known for its beautiful natural landscapes, extraordinary urban forest and fresh, clean air. Residents in our community are engaged, make a positive difference and help shape a healthy environment.

In fact, we’re counting all the trees that are planted, with the five year mission of 65,000 Trees for Halton Hills. That’s one for every resident of our Town!


What We’re Doing –

  • promoting the benefits of planting trees in urban and rural areas of Halton Hills
  • identifying sources of seedlings, saplings and mature trees
  • identifying and targeting sites for planting – parks, boulevards, schools, churches, businesses, farms, commercial street, and more.
  • organizing planting events
  • issuing a tree planting challenge and promoting planting the right tree in the right place
  • engaging people in documenting/registering their trees
  • calculating and celebrating as we reduce our carbon footprint and green Halton Hills!
