Spring Planting at Sycolin Elementary School

Now in their fifth year, the dedicated team at Sunrise Landscape + Design just completed their annual Arbor Day plantings at Sycolin Creek Elementary. With an idea and a desire to give back to their community, in 2009 Sunrise Landscape + Design started donating trees and shrubs to Sycolin Creek Elementary School to teach their students about proper planting, pruning and the benefits of planting trees for their school.

Over the past five years, Sunrise has donated two Saucer Magnolia’s, three Kwansan Cherry and Willow Oak Trees, three Zelkova’s, a Maple Tree and a new bench for the front of the school.

Spring Planting at Sycolin Elementary School

For the past 6 years Sunrise has donated and planted various trees around Sycolin Creek Elementary School in Leesburg.  Sunrise has planted Cherry trees in the front, built a stone bench as well as planted shade trees around the multi use playground in the back of the school.  Joe Markell, the owner and CEO of Sunrise also spends time with the kids talking to them about the importance of planting trees especially around buildings, how to plant them properly, how to properly mulch the trees, and how to make sure you pick the correct tree for where you are planting.
