Fight to save Ginkgo in Kansas City
"Ginkgo trees in Japan, considered living fossils for their age and tenacity, survived the atomic blast at Hiroshima. But northeast Johnson County residents Bernadette and Denny Lee fear their half-century-old ginkgo will not survive a vote of the Roeland Park City Council. The 40-foot tree — now naked after this week’s cold snap denuded it in a single night — is in the path of a $5 million storm water project designed to protect residents from knee-deep flooding that has plagued the area for more than three decades."
