West Winds Nursery LLC, the parent company of Shade Tree Farm, was recognized with the Outstanding Technical Craftsmanship Award at the 22nd Annual Leesburg, Virginia Flower and Garden Festival this past weekend.

“We are very proud to receive this recognition,” said Philip Klene, the owner of West Winds Nursery. ” Last year and the year before we were awarded first place. It is great to know our efforts in creating memorable landscapes are appreciated by the judges, the public and our customers.
