Long Island’s Acorn Apocalypse

News, In The News


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.
