About this Article
The emerald ash borer has ravaged ash trees all across the state, but Huntley has received a grant to help replace some of the ones that died in the bugs wake. In February, the village received a $10,000 Illinois Urban Forest Restoration grant to help replace some of the ash trees it lost to the bug. Thursday night, the village board gave preliminary approval to the staffs plan that outlines how to divvy up the money.
