Trees Along Man O' War Boulevard To Be Replaced

Trees Along Man O' War Boulevard To Be Replaced

14 large, potentially dangerous trees will be replaced with 33 smaller trees.
Kentucky Utilities and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government have joined forces to help make Man O' War Boulevard safer.

They will remove 14 large trees that could potentially fall onto power lines in a story and will replace them with 33 smaller trees.

LG & E and KU put a $4,000 Plant the Planet grant toward the project and the Urban County Council's Corridors Commission added an additional $4,000.

The work is scheduled to start next week and will take place along Man O' War Boulevard between Parker's Mill Road and a golf range.

The new trees will be species native to the area like Eastern Redbud, Allegheny Serviceberry, and Winter King Hawthorn.
