The 'Sky Tower' Ginkgo is a popular tree for tight spaces where upright/tight growth is desirable. Named because they grow upward in a tight column, this ginkgo will grow about 6-8 ft. wide and around 20 ft. tall. If you've never seen a ginkgo leaf, they are one of the most beautiful leaves of any tree. They will add an exotic appeal to any garden or yard. Ginkgo trees grow a uniform light green in the spring and darken up slightly in the summer. In the fall ginkgo trees have consistent golden leaves. The color is outstanding and can rival any other tree for fall beauty. Combine these with red maples, dogwoods, or a purple leave cherry for an amazing display.
All 'Sky Tower' Ginkgo Trees are of a male selection - meaning they will not produce fruit. These trees are very hardy and have withstood the test of time. The ginkgo is literally 270 million years old, making it one of the most ancient and successful trees. When caring for these trees we recommend maintaining the usual mulch ring to protect the tree from elements, competing plants, and yard equipment for the first few years. Slow release fertilizer can be applied (per directions on the bag) in the early fall to give the tree a boost that will carry through to spring. See our care tab below for more details.

My Ginkgo arrived fast and was well packaged. The leaves were beginning to bud out and the tree was in great shape. The size is larger than a lot of online nurseries sale. I was very pleased with New Blooms Nursery and would buy from them again!
This tree arrived in its dormant state, but beautiful just the same. Nice height. I am looking forward to watch it bud out and develop.
Great customer service. Will buy from New Bloom again.
I ordered 3 Sky Tower Ginkgos and once the order was placed, they were packed up and ready to ship out. I needed them soon due to the weather coming and Travis was able to send them out to meet my schedule which was awesome.
Once they were shipped, 1 made it within the timeline and 2 of them were lost in the mail (due to USPS, not New Blooms) for 20 days due to the delays caused by COVID-19. However, Travis was on top of the shipping delays on his end and was able to send out 2 replacements in a timely manner so I could get them planted before it started getting too hot.
They were package very well and had a good root system on them and some new growth since they were coming out of dormancy. I'm looking forward to seeing how they do in the Spring and Summer, but overall I was very happy with the purchase.
If I order anymore trees, I will order from New Blooms.
My new tree came carefully packed and in good shape. It is nearly as tall as I am. I am very pleased with it.
