The Urban Forest Initiative (UFI) is a collaborative group of University of Kentucky and Lexington community stakeholders whose purpose is to promote and protect the urban tree canopy on the UK campus, in Lexington, and throughout the region. UFI is dedicated to maintaining the current tree canopy while promoting and planning for our future urban forests. We strive to raise awareness of the ecological, social, and economic benefits provided by urban trees.
