Arboretum teams up to provide ash borer funding - Naperville Sun:
The Morton Arboretum and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus on Wednesday made $1 million in federal grant money available to municipalities to fight the effects of emerald ash borer.

The invasive pest has already killed tens of millions of ash trees in North America and threatens the estimated 130 million ash in Illinois.

The Arboretum and MMC, which represents 272 Chicago-area mayors, today posted a Request for Proposal on their websites for municipalities to apply for the grant money.
