LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An organization focused on the clean-up and beautification of Louisville is set to plant over 100 trees in several metro neighborhoods.

Brightside has formed a plan to plant 135 trees in the Parkland, California and Park Hill neighborhoods. All are located in Louisville's west end.

The volunteer-driven and donor-funded organization works year-round to make the community cleaner and greener. In 2014 alone, their clean-ups removed over 39 tons of garbage from Louisville's streets and parks, according to the website.
