 Male Variety of Unique Tree with Amazing Fall Color!

The Princeton Sentry Ginkgo is a a truly unique tree that would look great planted along your street, as a shade tree in your backyard or as a specimen tree in front.  

The Princeton Sentry is the preferred male version because it is not known to drop smelly seed shells.The Princeton Sentry Ginkgo grows up to 50 feet and 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 one-of-a-kind leaves are actually shaped like a fan with an almost leathery texture that will tempt you to reach out and touch them every time you walk by. In the autumn your Ginkgo’s leaves will turn a blazing yellow that shimmers in the morning and late afternoon sunlight. 

The Ginkgo tree is often called a “living fossil” as it’s similar to fossils found from millions of years ago. It has been widely cultivated and used medicinally as well as for its edible features.  In some parts of the world it’s even considered sacred.  

The Princeton Sentry Ginkgo is a tree worth having for many reasons. When you plant a Ginkgo you not only get an appealing landscape tree, but also a conversation piece for friends and neighbors. 

Having a Ginkgo means not only possessing a tree, but also a “living fossil” with a rich and fascinating history.
