64 Ginkgo

Ginkgo, Ginkgo Biloba

The Ginkgo is a very unique tree. It is a "living fossil", being one of the oldest trees species living. Once found throughout Europe and North America, most died out during the Ice Age and surviving trees were later found in China. The tree tolerates and survives almost all adverse conditions including drought, heat, air pollution and poor soils. It is virtually free of insects and diseases. This is a slow growing tree with not many specimens in our valley.
