ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state Department of Environmental Conservation has awarded $280,000 in Environmental Protection Fund grants for urban forestry projects such as tree-planting in communities across New York.

Earlier this year, the state awarded nearly $800,000, bringing the total for urban forestry projects in 2014 to more than $1 million.

Projects include reforestation in areas affected by Superstorm Sandy and restoring forest canopy lost to invasive species such as the Emerald Ash Borer or the Asian Long Horned Beetle.
