A: We’ve had a program over the last three or four years of managing our ash trees in a different way. We’re looking very closely at our active recreation areas or campgrounds where there’s the potential for ash trees that might be damaged, and we’re removing those. On some, we’re going through some treatment. We’re always hearing the update about the next big looming issue to come. We do a lot of milfoil management. We do a lot of harvesting on Lake Minnetonka as well as other lakes. We have a good partnership with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and local lake associations to do active boat inspections for milfoil and zebra mussels. These are not local problems, they’re regional problems.
