Tree Spraying to Start in D.C.

They say "April showers bring may flowers," but another biproduct has the District taking aim at the stink of spring.

Starting Monday night, crews from the District Department of Transportation's Urban Forestry Administration will begin spraying the city's ginkgo trees.

Those trees produce a fruit that is notorious for its bad odor and ability to stick to and stain your clothes.

Spraying will start in Wards 1, 2 and 6 where most of the trees are located then continue throughout the rest of the city. You will not need to move your car if it's parked on the street.

If you do have any questions about the spraying you can contact UFA at (202) 671-5133.
