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.
