A Stunning Tree That's Nearly Indestructible
Why Sky Tower Ginkgo Trees?
The Ginkgo Tree is often called a living fossil, having been around for more than 200 million years. That's why it's one of the hardiest and most adaptable trees you can purchase. And the Sky Tower Ginkgo gives you all of these benefits in a compact, dense tree form with rich, unbelievable color.
The Sky Tower is totally adaptable, thriving in any soil or environmental condition without fuss. From salty or polluted air to poor soil and beyond, less-than-stellar garden conditions don't stand a chance when it comes to the Sky Tower Ginkgo.
Plus, it's hardy all the way down to -30 degrees and grows in hot, humid weather. That means the Sky Tower thrives in New England or in the Miami heat. No matter where you live, you can just plant your Sky Tower and watch it take off...bad weather, pests and diseases pose no threat.
Through it all, the fan-shaped leaves grow in a tight formation around this conical tree, with a stunning deep green in the spring and an outstanding fall display of bright, mesmerizing yellow.

This is the first time I purchased a tree online but it was not possible to get a Ginkgo tree from local nursery with a columnar form. So I took a chance. While the outer cardboard box was banged up the tree was in excellent condition. It arrived in a sturdy plastic pot. I replanted in a larger and watered well. After several weeks it is doing well. Thanks for giving me access to tree varieties I can not get locally. I just ordered a Persian lime tree I am waiting for.
Arrived in excellent condition. Seemed well rooted. Doing very good so far.
I love these trees. They arrived healthy and ready to plant. Cannot wait to see these beauties grow into big, beautiful trees that line our driveway.
Very good. The cardboard cover over the dirt should be taped down. Mine came out and almost half the pit of dirt came out.
Both trees arrived with fresh green leaves - I got them in the ground and they looked good .. the next night our area had a frost and all the soft green leaves were damaged.. I am checking for new growth because I think the hard woody stem should be ok.. on the same tree - my two Sky Tower ginkgoes from 2018 -one only lasted one year, but I was not at home to follow up. The second tree is just now breaking bud and showing new growth!! It looks good and is almost 6 feet tall.. I hope the other two will re-sprout and start new vegetative growth..
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Start by digging your planting hole at least three times as wide and as deep as the root ball. Well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) are best for your tree.
To plant, set your tree in the planting hole so that the top edge of the root ball is at ground level. If necessary, add some backfill soil mixture to the bottom of the hole to achieve proper planting height.
After setting your tree in the planting hole, use one hand to hold the tree straight and your other hand to begin backfilling your soil mixture around the root ball, tamping as you go to remove air pockets. Finally, water the area and apply a 2-inch layer of shredded or chipped wood mulch.
2. Watering: When established, Ginkgos are drought tolerant. However, you can water weekly during extended dry periods or extreme summer heat. If you're not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down.
FGT Tip: If you see leaves wilting, turning yellow, or dropping from the tree during a summer drought, these symptoms are an indicator your tree could use more water.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your young Ginkgo Tree before new leaves emerge in late winter or early spring. Use a slow-release shrub and tree type fertilizer and follow label instructions.
4. Pruning: Gingko Trees do not require pruning, but if you'd like to prune for shaping, it's best to do so during the summer.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
