Leesburg Today - The Journal of Loudoun County - Report: Leesburg Still Pricey Place To Live:
The town continued with its environmental endeavors. More than 900 new trees were planted in the town in FY09, with several hundred along a portion of Battlefield Parkway, at Ida Lee Park, the water treatment plant and West Market Street. The report does note, however, that the 27 percent town tree canopy reported in 2007 has diminished due to development. The Leesburg Watershed Committee and the Piedmont Environmental Council also oversaw the planting of trees in Kincaid Forest and next to Village Lanes.
