The map shows the tree canopy cover within the urban areas of the Region of Peel. The canopy cover includes both natural areas, as well as trees in other areas such as parks, yards and street trees.

This mapping was completed as part of the Peel Region Urban Forest Strategy and related background studies, which can be found in the Climate Change Reading Library. The information is shown at multiple scales including Wards, Small Geographic Unit, and Dissolved Block Face.

Small Geographic Unit (SGU)

Small geographic units are used for mid-scale census data dissemination and analysis, and are created to correspond with the unique geographical features found in the Region. SGUs are units created by the Region of Peel in partner with its municipalities to analyse community census data.

Dissolved Block Face

A census geography that is bounded on all sides by road and, in some cases, by major water features.

The Dissolved Block Face is defined by Statistics Canada at each Census period and is the smallest unit for which data is released (population and dwelling units).
