Friday - 11/23/2012, 7:43am  ET

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Groups that plant trees in areas serviced by Louisville Gas & Electric Co. or Kentucky Utilities can apply for grants to fund the activity.

The utilities offer amounts from $500 to $5,000 to organizations that have a history of successful tree plants in the service territories. That area includes 93 Kentucky counties and five counties in Virginia.

The Courier-Journal ( http://cjky.it/T5ccxf) says applications and program information is available until Dec. 14 at http://www.lge-ku.com/plantfortheplanet. Applications must be postmarked by Dec. 14 to be eligible for consideration.

Proposal status will be announced in February.

The program launched in 2009, and since then, it has supported planting more than 20,000 trees.
