Tree of the Week

An Old Ginkgo at the Detroit Zoo - with Trim Pines' fourth generation. Click for larger pictureGinkgo, Maidenhair Tree

Ginkgo biloba--Maidenhair Tree 

Hardiness Zones: 4 to 8 
Height: 65 ft
Spread: 75 ft
Form: pyramidal 
Type: deciduous tree 
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches 

Comments: Ginkgo is practically pest free, resistant to storm damage, and casts light shade. Only male plants should be used, as the female produces ill-smelling fruit in late autumn. Ginkgo tolerates most soil types. The tree is easily transplanted and has a yellow fall color. Its unusual leaf shape gives it personality, and makes for a nice change from the standard trees found in landscapes.

Lovely yellow fall color

Autumn Gold TM - A male with an upright, symmetrical form.
