Can anyone recommend a good arborist? I need someone to help me stop/reduce the fruit production of a smelly Gingko tree. Thanks.

David Kannapell is a fine arborist who helps us take care of some big old trees. Try reaching him early in the morning or evening. Sorry, I've forgotten if he is David E or David H, but one is his Dad so you can't go too far wrong!

I can't recommend an arborist for you, but I found another site where they were addressing your exact problem, and suggested spraying the tree with "Florel."

Stop A Tree From Bearing Horrible Smelling Fruit - UBC Botanical Garden Forums

Another option discussed is to use high pressure water to blast the blooms off before they become fruit. The problem with that is that if the pressure is too high, you might also strip the tree of its foliage.

You might also contact U of K's Agriculture/Horticulture school to see if they can recommend someone to you, or if they have other suggestions to try.

Default Portland Arborist idea that may help pick a Louisville Arboirist

For future needs, consider using a country club for a referral.

Here in Portland, I learned over time, that golf course superintendants of private country clubs tend to select good arborists. And those managers are well trained in horticulture, so they know what to look for.

So whenever someone calls me for an arborist name, and they live across town or in some other suburb where I don't know other arborists, I ask them if they have a local country club.

Not many people would place calls like this, so I suggest seeing if they can get a message to the golf course superintendent to see who they use for an arborist.
