Recently, the Town of Milton also partnered with Conservation Halton and Anne J. MacArthur Public School to plant hundreds of other trees at Sunny Mount Park.
The Town of Milton believes in planting trees for the overall health and well-being of the environment. Street trees, in particular, provide cleaner air, cooler building and street-level temperatures, shade and stormwater absorption and mitigation, all while adding beauty to the neighbourhoods.
