Upright, Narrow Ginkgo + Golden Fall Color

Why Princeton Sentry™ Columnar Ginkgo Trees?

Merging the effortless durability and longevity of a classic Ginkgo with a new, upright form, the Princeton Sentry™ Columnar Ginkgo is perfect for those who love the look of a timeless shade tree but don't have much space in their landscape.

And its eye-catching, golden-yellow fall foliage can't be beaten. Despite its slow growth and ability to acclimate well to tighter spaces, it delivers a huge amount of color that's hard to find from other varieties. Plus, because it's virtually pest- and disease-free, you won't have to bother with harsh chemicals or sprays...simply plant your Princeton Sentry™ and forget it.

It's even drought tolerant once established and tolerates poor soil conditions. That means there's no guesswork in growing...whether you live in a climate that sees frigid temperatures down to -40 degrees or some parts of the south.

Good to (Gink)go!

Record high, triple-digit temperatures; warmest summer in all recorded history; extreme drought... "You're a fool to plant a tree right now!" they said. Yet, this is precisely why I wanted to plant more as soon as possible. So, fool as I am, this tree arrived shortly after Labor Day on a day with a high of 103. I'm here to watch over him and give him the boost he needs to settle-in nicely before winter dormancy (and root growing). And FGT did their part (as always) by delivering a very healthy young tree for me to nurture! The tree was in good condition with healthy leaves and nothing broken. The leaves on this tree are more tubular/rolled than on my other ginkgo, which has flat, fan-shaped leaves. They're still ginkgo-shaped, just not stretched out flat. Hopefully that'll give this variety a little more resistance to sun-scorching, since I live in the far Southern end of his suggested hardiness range. This pic is from just after he was in the ground. This is the first time one of my trees arrived with a mark to indicate which side of the tree was originally facing North (at least that's what I think the paint mark on the trunk is used for in other nurseries), so I gave him his "correct" orientation when I planted him. He'll be pruned as he grows, so the direction of the few existing branches isn't all that important. I can't wait until he grows up tall and dazzles me in the fall.
