Compact, Dense Growth and Fan-Shaped Foliage
Why Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' Trees?
It's an ornamental masterpiece prized for its compact stature and dense leaves: The ball-shaped Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' flattens as it grows, naturally spreading twice as wide as it is tall without any ties, wires or pruning. And the miniature tree retains the many charms of the towering Ginkgo Biloba, including a longer life and foliage that turns gold in autumn.
It's a sturdy, carefree tree. The compact and hardy dwarf tree enjoys full sun and grows with minimal attention. Naturally resistant to diseases and pests, the Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' is also tolerant of air pollution, clay-heavy soil, and nibbling deer.
And because this Mariken Tree is a male variety, you won't have to deal with the foul-smelling fruit that precludes most homeowners from owning similar varieties.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Consider its mature size while planting (don't plant too closely to structures), and find a well-drained, full sun area (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Ginkgo should be planted in the fall or spring. The hole should be twice as wide and slightly deeper than the root ball. Press the soil around the roots as you fill, and water thoroughly when finished. Try to protect young transplants from excessively dry soil conditions.
2. Watering: Water regularly for the first 3 years of growth, but be sure not to waterlog. Generally, watering once or twice weekly is ideal, or checking the surrounding soil for dryness. Mulching is ideal so as to retain moisture in the summer.
3. Fertilizing: Annual applications of compost is recommended. Use a slow-release fertilizer like 10-10-10 in the spring according to label instructions to give your tree a boost.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

I was a little concerned at first with the tree, but it is thriving and doing well. Thanks you all did a great job.
An Anniversary Ginkgo Balbao
This was the truest celebration of our Anniversary. The dwarf Ginkgo Balbao arrived in perfect condition & was planted with all ceremony! He then slipped a ring on my finger that was a band with Gingko leaves & diamonds. Happy # 25 Fast Growing Trees! Can always count on you-

The second time around , I had no broken branches, thanks so much for your concern. I will be buying more trees from Your company.
Excellent in every way!
Quickly delivered. Packaging is best I’ve ever seen. Friendly. Fast growing Trees is probably my favorite tree resource.
Experience was great. Tree is doing very well in a sunny location in San Antonio, TX. It seems to be growing leaves already! Excited about it.
