Property owners along CapX power line route angry with utility companies' treatment

Some property owners along the route of CapX2020 tell Minnesota Public Radio they're not happy with some of their interactions with the utility companies behind the project. One man who says he'll lose more than an acre of mature oak trees says the companies are trying to low-ball landowners. Others are being told they're not "directly affected" so they aren't entitled to compensation.
