How to choose Ginkgo trees

Also known as the Maindenhair tree, Gingkos are an unusual genus of trees which which have been around unchanged since before the time of the dinosaurs. They are conifers, but unlike most conifers they are also deciduous - their leaves turn yellow and fall in the autumn.

They do best in well-drained soils, and in UK conditions are likely to reach about 7m in the longer term.
