 If you’re looking for an indestructible tree, here it is.

The Gingko tree (Ginkgo biloba) is also called the Maidenhair Tree. It is a truly unique tree that has no close living relatives.

The Gingko tree can tolerate most anything. It does well in poor soil, compacted soil can withstand drought, winter salt and even air pollution. They are usually deep rooted and resistant to snow and wind damage.

The leaves on the Gingko are an interesting fan shape that flutters in the slightest breeze. They are a beautiful dark green from spring to summer usually 2-4 inches but can sometimes be up to 6 inches long.

In autumn the leaves turn a brilliant, saturated yellow. One of the most favored and popular characteristics of the Gingko tree.

The female Gingko tree produces a yellow orange, plum-like fruit. The nuts inside the fruit are considered a delicacy in Asian cooking.

The extract from the leaves are used in Gingko Biloba supplements to improve memory, symptoms of dementia and blood flow.

The Gingko Tree can live 1,000 or more years, has been around since the dinosaurs, and is as beautiful as it is beneficial. It is a conversation starter that would be an interesting addition to any yard.

* Pest and disease resistant
* Unique leaves with medicinal benefits
* Beautiful fall color

Phenomenol Tree Review by ablpete
These will be the 8th and 9th Ginkgoes I have planted. (Two at my first two houses, three at the third house. More to follow here,) The first ones I planted are now over 40 feet tall. These are great shade trees. They grow 1 to 1-1/2 feet per year. They love to be pruned and shaped. They have outlived all of their natural enemies, except lightning.
Tolerant of many soils Review by Nick
I started this Ginkgo is some of my toughest soil and it is growing well. I tried to plant a pine tree there before and it died in a hurry. When they say it will handle tough soils, they are right, in this case for sure.
Hardy tree Review by Armin
I planted a row of these trees to begin to develop a tree line. They grew much faster than the oaks and they grew more evenly. I have good start for a bunch of wildlife shelter.
Nice tree and good customer service Review by tm4ever
My first time ordering from Nature Hills although I have listened to their gardening advice now for years. I just couldnt find a good specimen of this tree locally and thought I would take the chance. Ordering from other nurseries a 4-5 ft tree is usally like 3 1/2 foot but not this one. This tree was near 5 ft which excited me upon receipt. This tree has really taken off, you can tell it was well taken care of at the nursery and shipped well. Will definitely be buying more trees from here.
My Favorite Tree Review by Al Peters
The first two gingko trees I planted were in the yard of the first home we owned. I was able to buy them "bare root" from a nursery about an hour from our home. To keep the roots of these 6' tall "sticks" reasonably straight, I had to dig a hole 3-1/2' in diameter and 3' deep. The roots went down on about a 45 degree angle from the trunk. I made a mixture of fallen leaves from other trees and the soil from the hole. These trees started growing about a foot per year from the very first season. 30 years later, the trees are a little over 40' tall. I planted one at our next house during our first year there. When we sold the house 23 years later, it was as tall as the 1-1/2 story house. The second one we planted there was shocked for several years, apparently from losing many of its feeder roots when it was dug up. It finally started keeping pace. In the 5 years we have lived in our present home, we have planted 3 gingko trees. One was 8 feet tall and got over the shock of transplant with the third season. It now grows an average of 18" per season, and is now about 16' tall. The second one is due to get over the shock this year. The third was a small sprout, which started growing the first season. It has more than tripled in size in the two seasons we have had it. I purchased a fossil from the Paleocene era, which included a fossilized gingko leaf. They have kept the same shape for over 60 million years! There are no insects or diseases that effect the gingko. I told my brother that their only remaining natural predator is lightning. He added, "And man." To which I simply replied, "At about 1 million years, man is new!" I love to watch for which day the trees will drop their leaves in the fall. While living in our second home, I was leaving one morning, looked over at the tree, and a steady stream of leaves was falling. I watched for awhile, but ultimately had to go. When I got home, there were 3 leaves left on the entire 20' tall tree.
