PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - More than $1 million has been set aside to remove trees near a New Hampshire airport and put warning lights on tall trees that won’t be cut down.

Airport manager Paul Breen tells the Portsmouth Herald ( ) that an unknown number of trees will be cut down near the Portsmouth International Airport in Newington because they could become obstructions.

Most of the money comes from a federal grant.

Breen said it’s a significant project and part of an eight-year plan.

The work is expected to start in the early fall.
