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.

A + ginkgo tree
My ginkgo tree arrived safely in its big cardboard box. It does not have a lot of branches, but branch buds symmetrically all over the trunk. The reason I had not bought a ginkgo before is I couldn’t find one that seemed symmetrical in the landscaping stores. Although This one looked like a walking stick with limb buds , they are already turning green and starting to grow. How would rather start with a smaller good specimen, then buy a larger one in a landscaping shop that looked like one side of branches had been broken. I’ll be very interested to see how much growth I get per year, hopefully a lot.
Cant complain it was free from cyber Monday hopefully it grows out to be a nice big tree although It was only 6 inches when i got it.
A Nice Little Tree
The tree was small as I expected it would be but in excellent healthy. It was carefully packaged for shipment. Hopefully it will leave out in spring.
Free Ginko Tree
I received my free tree with my other order....It was a 3 inch twig and I thought it was dead...I kept on watering it for a few weeks and now I see new growth starting. I am now getting ready to transfer it to a larger pot.....It will make a nice shade tree for my front yard...It looks like it will be a beautiful tree in the fall when the color changes...Being a hardy tree and it grows most anywhere I would recommend it to anyone that wants a nice shade tree.
Smaller than expected but dormant and living. Hoping it will grow large and have beautiful yellow leaves in future fall seasons.
Planting & Care
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.
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
