The City of Brampton is giving away hundreds of trees to residents to help the Flower City go a little more green this month.

September has been dubbed Tree Month by the City, which will be giving away some 500 free trees to Bramptonians to celebrate the occasion. Residents will be able to select from Red Maple, Red Oak, Ironwood, Blue Beech or White Spruce trees, or Nannyberry or Serviceberry shrubs.

The free trees will be available at four parks and community centres across the city, with approximately 150 trees available per location.

You can pick up a free tree on Sept. 24 at the Gore Meadows Recreation Centre from 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m., and the Bramalea Ltd Community Park from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

There will be two more giveaways on Sept. 25 at Susan Fennel Sports Plex from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., and the Creditview Sandalwood Park from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The free trees are part of the city’s One Million Trees Program, which is a push from the city and partners to increase tree planting initiatives and plant one million trees by the year 2040.

The city is also running a social media campaign this month, asking Brampton residents to snap photos of their favourite trees in Brampton and share them using the hashtag #BramptonTrees for a chance to be featured on the city’s social media channels website at

There’s also a Tree Month colouring contest where residents can download a tree-themed colouring sheet for a chance to win prizes. The contest runs until Oct. 1 and includes categories for both kids and adults.
