Trees & Woodlands
The urban forest is made up of all the trees growing in the Town of Oakville, including town-owned street and park trees, trees in forested areas, as well as trees on private property. Trees are an important part of Oakville's urban landscape, and provide a wide variety of social, health, aesthetic, economic and environmental benefits. The town's Forestry Section manages Oakville's urban forest using a long-term, sustainable strategy of development and maintenance in order to provide a perpetual green cover on public lands. In 2007, the Town of Oakville was named the Forest Capital of Canada by the Canadian Forestry Association.
