Gingko Biloba Tree 

Ginkgo Biloba A native of China, this tree is considered to be a living fossil. It has been dated as far back as 270 million years and, after being rediscovered in its native land in 1691, it was brought to the U.S. in the late 1700s. The hardy trees are tolerant of air pollution and highly resistant to diseases, deer and insects. They can also be transplanted easily and have few problems establishing themselves; and because they can thrive even in crowded spaces, they do well in an urban environment, functioning either as shade or ornamental trees. These are slow-to-moderate growers, usually growing at an average rate of one to two feet per year. 

The trees are classified as conifers, but are deciduous and broad-leafed. They are best known for their unique, leathery 2-3 inch fan-shaped, double-lobed leaves that turn from bright green in spring and summer to bright gold in the fall. While moist, well-drained sandy soil is optimal for them, they are tolerant of acidic, alkaline and compacted soil. They are able to withstand some moderate wetness and some drought conditions, but do not thrive in hot, dry climates. They are sometimes called the maidenhair tree because of the resemblance of the fan-shaped leaves to the leaflets of the maidenhair fern.

The species is known by the common name Gingko or Latin name Gingko Biloba. The females of the species produce insignificant green blooms in April. These trees can tolerate partial shade, but do best with a minimum of four hours of direct sun a day.
