Naperville has received a $30,000 grant to protect its ash trees from the emerald ash borer (EAB). This funding will cover treatment costs for about 400 ash trees during the spring and summer of 2024.

According to the city’s Public Works Director, Dick Dublinski, this preventative effort has been ongoing since 2008, resulting in growth rather than decline of Naperville’s ash tree canopy. The grant was provided by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and USDA Forest Service, administered by The Morton Arboretum’s Chicago Region Trees Initiative.
