Daily Herald report

The Rolling Meadows City Council will discuss the city's fight against the emerald ash borer Tuesday night.

The city removed 165 trees by the end of 2012, plans to take out about 70 this month and expects as many as 250 more will need to be removed this year. Thirty-seven new trees were planted to replace the ash trees in 2012.

City staff recommends waiting about a year before replacing a tree. This allows ground settlement and decay of the old root system.
