The ginkgo tree is the sole surviving species of a group of trees that flourished 65 million years ago. They are also called Maidenhair trees and have gorgeous blue-green fan shaped leaves that are unlike any other tree. The unique shaped leaves are an amazing sight when the trees turn a brilliant yellow in the fall. Ginkgo trees grow best in full sun to partial shade and can adapt to many different soil conditions. It also does very well in urban landscaping, standing up to heat, air pollution, salty soil, and confined spacing. These trees are easy to establish and once established they are both maintenance and pest free. Ginkgo trees are long lived and can possibly attain a height greater than 80 feet with a girth of 3 to 4 feet.
