Unique Leaves for Bright Yellow Fall Foliage
Why Ginkgo Trees?
Colorful, unique foliage, as well as pest and drought resistance, set the Ginkgo Tree apart. An unusual ornamental tree famous for its interesting shape and vibrant foliage, the Ginkgo stands out with its tall, rounded form and delicately-crafted leaves.
In fact, this is one of the first trees to change colors in the autumn months. While other trees are still green, the Ginkgo transitions to a fluorescent yellow. And it thrives all over the United States. It's especially perfect for urban areas since it won't be bothered by smog and other pollution.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
At our 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 and cause a sticky mess. And because it does not bear fruit, the male Ginkgo doesn't emit the bad smell commonly associated with some Ginkgos.
But the best part about growth at our nursery is that it means a head start for you and long-lived, healthy results in your own landscape. Adaptable to many different types of soil, our Ginkgo is also resistant to pests and will be drought resistant in maturity.
So, reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery. Get your own Ginkgo Tree today!
Customer Reviews & Photos
- Fast Growing Trees
Tree looked real healthy and well packaged. I bought from them because they assured me that it was a male plant (very important to me with the Gingko).
Tree received in great condition. Tree looks beautiful even at this early age. Hope it grows to be a majestic one.
We are pleased with our tree. It is a nice specimen, it was well packaged and prepared for easy planting. We can't wait until it is full size. Hoping it survives it's first year.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select a spot that takes the mature height and width of your Ginkgo Tree into consideration. And give it an area surrounded by well-draining, preferably sandy soil, as well as ample sunlight.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide and a little deeper than the root ball. Soak the Ginkgo Tree in a bucket of water before planting. 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. Replace the soil you removed from the bottom of the hole, filling in around the root ball, then water the planting site.
2. Watering: Water your Ginkgo Tree regularly each week and more often as necessary during hot, dry periods.
3. Fertilizing: There is no need to add fertilizer as Ginkgo Trees will thrive with the nutrients available in the soil. If you do, you can fertilize with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.
4. Pruning: Pruning early to develop one central leader is highly recommended to ensure healthy, strong development.
