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.

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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
The tree was delivered in perfect condition. Can't wait for it to settle in.
Great Tree Perfect Memorial
It was delivered so quickly! It was well packed and arrived in great condition. It will be a memorial tree honoring our sweet golden retriever. You were almost out so I ordered even though it is supposed to get to 100 degrees several days this week. I planted it in a large pot for now, so I can move it to a more comfortable spot if the heat gets to it.
Everything arrived in great shape we planted our tree(s) in our front yard and they are growing and looking healthy . We are very pleased with everything we ordered
Sky Tower Ginkgo tree
My experience was excellent! I had a wonderful conversation with a young lady who helped me with the purchase of the tree. I chose this tree for the exact size and location - it is perfect. The tree arrive package so well and I immediately placed it in a pot with potting mix. It will shortly go into the ground. The tree was in great shape and I appreciate the special care to it! I'm sure I will enjoy this beautiful piece of nature for years to come! This company is excellent!
Perfect for my needs
They arrived well packed and ready to go into the ground. But I was not ready so potted them up and set them aside where they'll be happy until I can remove a row of unhappy columnar oaks. I expect they'll be a wonderful addition to my landscaping but time will tell.
