Unique Leaves - Bright Yellow Fall Foliage

- 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.

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 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.

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.
January 1, 2013
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.

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.

Planting & Care

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

Ginkgo Tree Planting Diretions

 The Ginkgo Tree is an amazing tree that is one of the oldest living species on earth, making it a tough tree that requires little maintenance while adding many years of natural beauty to your landscape. Here is a useful guide to ensure your Ginkgo lives well into the next century.

Location: Select a spot that takes the mature height and width of your Ginkgo Tree into consideration. This incredible tree can soar to 100 feet tall and 50 feet wide. Give it an area surrounded by well-draining, preferably sandy soil. Make sure the location has ample sun as Ginkgos do not grow well in the shade.

Planting Instructions:
1)Dig a hole twice as wide and a little deeper than the root ball.
2) Break up the bottom of the hole and add a 2 inch layer of planting compost into the bottom of the hole.
3) Soak the Ginkgo Tree in a bucket of water before planting.
4) Once the roots are hydrated, place the tree in the hole.  The surface of the root ball should be about 1 inch below ground level.
5) Replace the soil you removed from the bottom of the hole, filling in around the root ball then water the planting site.
6) Add bark mulch to the planting area and keep it moist but not waterlogged through the first growing season.

Watering: Water your Ginkgo tree regularly each week and more often as necessary during hot, dry periods.

Pruning: Pruning early to develop one central leader is highly recommended to ensure healthy, strong development.

Fertilization: There is no need to add fertilizer as Ginkgo Trees will thrive with the nutrients available in the soil.  If desired, you can fertilize with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.

Pests: Ginkgo is virtually pest free. It’s even resistant to gypsy moths.

*Avoid planting near low hanging power lines or overhead obstructions.
*Do not over water your Ginkgo Tree

The Gingko Tree has fascinating leaf characteristics. The reviews that I have read about how long the tree lives and how hardy it is are definitely great selling point.

Amelia E on Mar 28, 2017
I had been looking for this tree for a couple of years - making sure it to be male. It's a good drought/wind/pest/disease resistant tree, but it needs to be male. The female has a fruit that would keep anyone away, including yourself from the yard. Was glad to have found HIM here and two years of growing, he's small but still going!
Jill G on Mar 27, 2017
I read about the ginkgo in an issue of "Horticulture" and was intrigued by its ancient pedigree and unique and striking beauty. Having a spot in my front lawn just crying out for a nice tree, I decided it would be perfect. Tomorrow is the first day of spring, and I can't wait to receive it and get it planted.
John K on Mar 19, 2017
This tree has such beautiful fall foliage. My wife remembers a Ginko tree outside of her father's office. She was so enchanted by its look and foliage that she wanted one on our retirement home property.
Robert T on Mar 16, 2017
I have always enjoyed this tree and it brings back memories of my son and our gardening together. I love to watch the leaves fall in the fall for they came down like rain, all within a day or two and they were ready to pick up.

It's the most beautiful tree in the fall and is an ancient connection to the days of dinosaurs
Leslie M on Dec 22, 2016
I chose the Ginkgo tree because of it's heartiness in poorer soil conditions and Zone 8 compatibility. Certainly the fast growth also played a factor. But the clincher was the fall color of this tree and how it will compliment the other trees and shrubbery in my back yard.

Beautiful leaves and an asset to any home.

I know this is an heirloom tree that has been on the Earth since before civilizations. I have always wanted to plant one. This tree arrived very strong and healthy. The leaves turned a beautiful yellow in the Fall. It established in its new home very well, and is now going dormant for the winter. I can't wait to welcome it back in the Spring. It's a unique little piece of history in our yard.

How fast does this tree grow?
Kimberly E on Jul 28, 2014

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.
Leaf description?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The leaf is shaped like a ladies hand held fan & the stem would be the handle of the fan.

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.

I want to plant a Ginkgo right up next to my concrete patio. Do I need to worry about the roots messing with the patio?
Rachel C on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think the roots go down rather than out. I say this because a local town planted Ginkgo trees in their parking lot and another planted them along a sidewalk. However I planted mine to the side of my yard because I wanted the shade and beauty there.
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!

BEST ANSWER: The ginkgo tree is remarkable. They can live for thousands of years and have been evolutionarily unchanged for over 270 million years. Some say the oldest species of tree in the world. It is highly adaptable to soil conditions and highly resistant to disease and pest. One of my favorite trees. I would never not recommend a ginkgo tree.
What kind of gingko is this?
Kailie W on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's the same Ginko sold by Fast Growing trees that I bought in Feb 2015. I am not aware that there are different varieties of Ginko.

Good luck in selecting your tree!

Is it too late to plant a Ginkgo this year? I live in NJ.
[email protected] d on Nov 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The rule for tree planting is simple. If you dig the hole, you can plant the tree. (e.g. if the ground is not frozen!). The fall is the best time to plant because the tree is dormant and has a chance for the ground to settle around the roots all winter. Go ahead with your planting.
