Sandy Spring Plants Trees at County Park

Sandy Spring Bank in Leesburg donated 20 trees to plant along the southern boundary of the Potomac Green Neighborhood Park in Ashburn to provide additional buffering for neighborhood.

       The project was part of the company’s effort to encourage volunteerism among employees and mark its 150th anniversary during 2018 by planting 150 trees at community sites in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC.

“Over time, the trees will provide shade for the many athletic event attendees, as well as buffering for the adjacent neighborhood,” stated county parks and recreation director Steve Torpy. “We are most grateful for the opportunity to partner with Sandy Spring on this project to celebrate the spirit of volunteerism and giving back to the community.”
