The Story

With no living relatives, the Ginkgo is one of the oldest trees in the world. Sometimes called “a living fossil”, it appears unchanged from fossils found 270 million years ago. When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima Japan in 1945, six Ginkgo trees were found to be the only surviving plants. Soon after the blast they began to bud and without any major deformities are still alive today. Thus, Japan regards the Ginkgo as “the bearer of hope”.

The Details

After planting this outstanding tree, you will never forget its beauty! Unusual, fan shaped leaves with distinct veins. The only two-lobe leafed tree in America. It turns an incredible clear yellow color in fall putting on a wonderful display. Imagine having a species of tree in your yard that was around when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Extremely free of pests and don’t worry about the horror stories you heard about the nasty smelling fruit. We have only selected chosen male varieties that do not produce any fruit.

How to Grow

In recent years, Ginkgo biloba (the natural supplement) is probably best known for its ability to improve short term memory and…what was I saying?…while the actual Ginkgo tree is best known for its unique fan-shaped leaves. Male Ginkgo trees are, in my opinion, one of the easiest trees to grow. You can literally plant it and forget about it – unless you don’t want to forget, then you should take your supplements. But why male Ginkgo trees? Female Ginkgo trees produce a fruit that, as it matures and falls to the ground, can emit a rather unpleasant odor. The male trees obviously don’t produce fruit, so you don’t have to deal with a stinky problem, which is why we only grow male Ginkgo trees. Ginkgo trees like full sun and tolerate a wide range of soils, including well-drained to dry soils. After planting your tree, apply an annual application of low rate fertilizer. You would only have to do so for the first 3 years or so during the fall season. Pruning isn’t really necessary. The Ginkgo tree has absolutely no pest problems! And they are pollution tolerant, making them a good selection for a city dwelling. I often see Ginkgo trees planted along city streets, but this isn’t the best location for this particular tree. While the Ginkgo is slow-growing, they do mature to a rather large size, which might be too big for a curb-side planting. You can however plant it in your yard, big or small, and it should do well. So you can sit back and admire your Ginkgo as you try to remember where you put those darn reading glasses.
