    The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...

    Bare-root trees are grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing.

    Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.

Botanical Name:

Ginkgo biloba

Does Not Ship To:



- Colorful, unique foliage
- Pest and drought resistant

An unusual ornamental tree famous for its interesting shape and vibrant foliage!

The Ginkgo tree is sure to make your landscape stand out! You'll be fascinated by its tall, rounded form and delicately shaped leaves.

This is one of the first trees to change colors in the autumn months. While other trees are still green, the Ginkgo turns almost fluorescent yellow!

This hardy tree thrives all over the United States! It is perfect for urban areas... it won't be bothered by smog and other pollution.

Here at the Fast Growing Tree Nursery, we stock the male variety of the Ginkgo; this has a number of advantages over the female variety of this tree. Unlike the female Ginkgo, the male does not bear fruit which fall to the ground causing a sticky mess. Because it does not bear fruit, the male Ginkgo also does not emit the terrible smell that the female variety is renowned for.

Adaptable to many different types of soil, the Ginkgo is resistant to pests, and will be drought resistant in maturity.

This spring marks the fourth year our three trees. The trees are full of leaves and brighten up our yard each fall. They are growing much slower than I'd like. Hoping for a big growth this year.

Ordered one of these several years ago. Somehow it got broken off after being planted. I was so sad. Decided to still give it a chance...cut off all the limbs but the largest one. Took a sock and tied it to the broken tree to have it grow up rather than out. IT WORKED!!! I continued to cut off any small branches that would try to grow out to have all the nutrients go to the one limb. If you look at it now you would never know that it started from one branch. About to order another one for my son.

This ancient Chinese tree is profoundly beautiful and historical. Mid-sized, and the fan-shaped leaves are a lovely soft green in summer and they change to bright yellow in the Fall. At the first freeze every single leaf drops dramatically at once. Hardy and resistant to pollution.

I ordered this male ginkgo tree on Saturday and it arrived on Thursday. I was so excited to add it to my yard that I immediately planted it exactly according to directions with the accompanying kit. It is so healthy and is a lovely addition in the large open space around our long driveway. Looking forward to watching it grow.

I had ordered the same tree from another company, it came smaller and took 4 months to sprout a leaf. I thought it was dead so I ordered from these guys. Night and day, a bigger tree, fully leafed out, and I received it in less than a week. Very Happy.

Looking good so far!
We got the 5' ginko tree in February while it was dormant hoping to plant it within a week. However, the weather turned really terrible so we buried the roots in some mulch. Well, it was the coldest February in years - the roots froze solid for 4 weeks. The tree didn't get planted until late March.

We followed the planting directions and also used the special root powder in the planting kit we ordered with the tree. We were doubtful it could have survived the winter but it did. Amazingly enough, it came to life in late April (the ginko seems to leaf out a little later than other trees in Northern Virginia) and has grown at least a foot so far. It looks very healthy (and happy). Looking forward to many more years of watching it grow. A great tree.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Ginkgo Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Ginkgo Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Ginkgo Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Ginkgo Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I've wanted a Ginko forever. I ordered this one to replace one of the 16 trees we lost last year. Knowing it would be a long term process for this to grow, it is an investment tree. It has begun to leaf out beautifully. I just ordered a very LARGE one to be placed in my front yard. It was a house warming gift my my elderly father. Looking forward to it being planted next week!

How fast does this tree grow?
Kimberly E on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've only had mine for 2 years and last year it spent all it's energy growing roots but this year it has grown about 6 inches so far. I would say they are a slow to moderate grower, but a lot depends on the location , soil, etc..
i have clay in my yard wiil ginko tree survive , its drooping?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I found this:
Ginkgo biloba trees require well-draining soil to thrive. They grow in heavy clay, loam or light,
sandy soil, but of all these soil types, sandy soil is best for the ginkgo tree. When you dig a hole for your ginkgo tree, fill the bottom with a 2-inch layer of compost. Ginkgo does not need additional fertilizer to thrive. Ginkgo trees must receive full sun; they grow poorly in the shade. Keep the soil moist during its first three to five years. The ginkgo tree is drought tolerant after that time. You may want to use caution when watering as clay does not drain well, which could result in over watering.
A Ginkgo Princeton Sentry was recommended by my Twp. Planners for planting between the sidewalk and curb. Is this a good tree for that purpose?
J B on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have purchased mine just about a year ago, I was really happy it came back to life after the winter not too severe winter in NC. It's a really nice looking tree I like the leave shape and is growing. Wish I could awanser about your location and not sure how large it will get the pic on fast growing trees is a prime specimen and results will differ my tree is about 6 ft tall. Only time will tell on your location and if it will get in the way of pedestrians ect. Good luck. Overall I really like the tree. Several of them would be nice site to look at
How fast do they grow?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Planted two of them 2 years ago. Was 5' 6" last fall and grew to 6' this last spring. I expect they will grow more than 6" next Spring. All the trees I've planted have really taken off by the 3rd or 4th year.
how often and how much to water a newly planted 1" diameter gingko tree? Its between sidewalk and street in Oakland, CA. Would a treegator be good as the primary watering way? and how often to fill?
Thaddea P on Jun 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Ginkgo Trees don't like to be over watered. The soil should be moist, but not over saturated. I would recommend checking your soil on a weekly basis and seeing if you need to water your tree yourself instead of using a tree gator.

please tell me the best time to plant a ginko tree?
it is the 2nd day of May 2016 and I live in N. Fl.(pensacola)
sheryl f on May 2, 2016
I would not plant your gingko in the ground now. It will have a difficult uphill fight to become established before the true heat of Summer in Florida, even Northern Florida, starts. Instead, I would find a suitable container and amend the soil appropriately--you can find out exactly what is needed on many websites or your local small nursery--and give it appropriate amounts of sun and water. Gingkos are EXTREMELY slow-growing trees, and actually do quite well in containers. I have had mine in a container now for several years, and it is doing very well. I hope this has been of some help to you. Good luck with the gingko! It is one of the oldest trees on Earth and has a wonderful future with you, if you only take the time to get to know it and treat it right. Paul
Why some Gingko tree have green foliage?
king fred on Aug 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When the tree leafs out in the spring the leaves are green, and in the fall they turn yellow before they fall off the tree. It's the same with a lot of trees...I think maple tree leaves are green, but they turn red before falling. I'm no expert on this subject. I simply bought a gingko tree as a gift for a family member, and since then I have been asked to answer questions about the tree.
How messy dropping leaves is this male variety of the Ginkgo Tree? Iam looking for a front yard tree, that does not require a lot of raking all year.
Linda B on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We bought ours 2 years ago, and so far it hasn't dropped any leaves, except for the fall when the leaves are supposed to come off. it is very beautiful, doesn't need much care, and looks refreshingly different than all of the other maples, oak, etc. in our neighborhood!
How can you tell whether you are getting a male or a female tree?
Ronald on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It states in the description that it is a male. I've had my Ginkgo about 2 years now and it is male as it doesn't bear fruit.
does it have invasive root system?
Diana on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, gingko trees are deep rooted, and while it is possible they could sprout buds from the trunk, they ordinarily reproduce by pollination, instead of rapidly spreading by the root system like bamboo.
We live in Estes Park CO. I would love to have one of these Ginkgo trees. Will the Ginkgo Tree grow well here in the high altitude, snow, cold winters beautiful spring, summer & fall's? Will the Deer & Elk eat on it? We have trouble with Voles will they eat the roots of the tree and destroy the tree? We want to put the tree in a burm, we don't have a sprinkler system so how much water will I have to water it daily/weekly? If you think this Ginkgo tree will grow fine here when would be the best time of the year to plant it?
Gaylan T on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you are in a good growing zone for the Ginkgo tree. It is rarely damaged by the deer. But it could be damaged by the voles. Water once a week with a deep soaking. With winter approaching, spring may be a better time to plant.
Why don't my Ginko leaves turn yellow in Fall?
Gary K on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The reason for that could be that it is not mature enough yet.
Can you buy the version of this tree that lives 3,000 years?
Ray M on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All ginkgo tree, giving the right environment, will live to 3,000 years old. Unless you plan to live in the deep forest, your young gingko tree probably won't last as long since the tree may be cut by down new owner of your land 500 years from now. Enjoy the ginkgo tree while you are alive, the pedigree of the tree doesn't matter.
Are your trees grafted onto rootstock?
Elizabeth M on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Gingko plants are grown on their own roots from seed. Our large 4-5 ft size has been growing for 5 years, is well-branched and with a well-developed root system. The 3-4 ft size is a healthy, well-developed plant, also, but is younger and smaller - and also costs less! We occasionally have other sizes due to availability, but all our plants are well-grown and high quality.
Where are your trees shipped from if I live in Pennsylvania?

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
