“Tree Walk of Historic Leesburg” Brochure Now Available
Learn more about the wide variety of mature native and exotic trees that line the streets of downtown Leesburg.
“Planting new trees and increasing the Town canopy is happening, but it's the preservation of our old mature trees that is really important,” Hatfield said, referencing two of the tallest and most unique trees in the center of town, a Redwood and a 200-year-old American Ash. “They are the ones that clean 70 percent of our air, reduce the street temperature by 10 degrees, and spread a green canvas above our concrete world.”
The brochure includes tree descriptions and locations, which cover an 8-block section of downtown. Print copies of the brochure are available at at Town Hall or a digital copy can be downloaded from the Town website at www.leesburgva.gov/treewalk.
