City going after stinky gingko trees

Some good news -- in order to reduce the rotten egg/poop smell that gingko trees give off every spring and summer, the District government is going to spray the fruit of the gingko trees. Let's hope it works.

I haven't seen too many of the trees in the Columbia Heights area, but still, every bit helps. The worst is when you walk through them so your shoes smell, then wherever you go, you take the smell with you.
