If you’ve smelled a particular odor that doesn’t exactly titillate your nostrils, odds are it’s the ginkgo tree spreading its not so glamorous scent throughout the city.

DDOT is on the case, ready to start tackling this spring staple in the District’s airspace by spraying the tree’s fruit (that’s what causes the scent in the first place) to prevent the stinky sensation from consuming every nook and cranny of DC.

The deodorization begins tonight.

Rachel moved to DC in the fall of 2005 to study Journalism and Music at American University. When she’s not keeping up with the latest Major League Baseball news, she works on making music as an accomplished singer-songwriter and was even a featured performer/speaker at TEDxDupont Circle in 2012. Rachel has also contributed to The Washington Examiner and MASN Sports’ Nationals Buzz as a guest blogger. See why she loves DC. E-Mail: rachel@welovedc.com.
