City crews in Lincoln are removing dozens of ash trees in order to reduce the threat of emerald ash borer bugs.  The city says nearly 40 trees were removed from Holmes Golf Course yesterday and they'll be replaced with a different type of tree.  The city says it's trying to replace about one-thousand ash trees every year.
