In 2005, Oakville was one of a number of Canadian municipalities to complete an Urban Forest Effect Model (UFORE) study, now known as i-Tree, to quantify the structure of the urban forest and its environmental benefits. In 2015, Oakville became the first municipality in Canada to conduct a ten-year follow-up survey to track the changes to the urban forest since the initial study. The results of the 2015 survey show that Oakville has increased its tree canopy by 1.3 per cent in the last ten years to a total canopy coverage of 27.8 per cent.
For more information, review the news release on the iTree report or view the complete report, Growing Livability - A Comprehensive Study of Oakville's Urban Forest.
Everyone — residents, homeowners, business owners, and community groups — can all help increase our tree canopy. Plant a tree on your property and get counted!
