Long Island is flooded with acorns, and Adelphi University is a featured site in a CBS New York news story.
Trees across Long Island are forming and dropping an abundance of acorns. Many people aren’t taking too kindly to the onslaught—either finding them a nuisance on the ground or fearing getting pelted by them.
CBS News New York turned to Adelphi University for input on the matter. Our arboretum of a campus has seen a particularly heavy downpour.
“These things are hard!” Adelphi junior Jordan Garofalo told CBS. Alexander Heyl, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology, explained the possible causes of the over-production of acorns, but assured viewers that they aren’t likely to cause injuries.
We’ve had complaints of falling acorns…and we think we found the culprit! Be on the lookout! pic.twitter.com/rah66CpFpb
