Interesting Notes about Maidenhair Tree:

The Ginkgo belongs to a group of plants that have existed since over 270,000,000 years ago.  It is no wonder because it can tolerate heat, air pollution, salt and establishes in tough growing conditions.  It is very slow to grow and will take years before it can provide shade, but its beauty and history is worth waiting for.  Only the female trees produce fruit and that is why it is preferrable to plant male trees due to the messy fruit with unpleasant odor produced by female trees.
