D.C. to spray ginkgo trees

It’s already that time of year: The District Department of Transportation is going to begin spraying ginkgo trees Thursday night in an effort to prevent the odor from becoming a problem.

Crews will spray the female ginkgo fruit in Wards 1, 2 and 6 first, because the trees are most prevalent there, followed by Wards 4, 5, 3, 7 and 8.

The spraying will occur overnight for the next few nights and there will be no need to move any cars parked on the street, officials said.

Here’s a map of the female ginkgo trees, just in case you are curious.
