Hurricane Sandy and Ginkgo tree
Yale Daily News (Yale University), the nation's oldest college daily newspaper, writes:
"Hurricane Sandy's howling winds tore a limb from one of the most beloved members of Timothy Dwight College Monday afternoon, ripping down one of the upper branches from the massive ginkgo tree stationed in the TD courtyard.
Timothy Dwight Master Jeffrey Brenzel addressed the loss in a Monday evening email to the TD community, writing that he expects the ginkgo to survive."
