What's the big deal with this tree everyone is calling the Ginkgo Tree? For a long time, this tree had been forgotten by many and many did not even hear about it before. The Ginkgo Biloba tree is one of the most beautiful trees that exist. It has very unique leaves that help it stand out from the others. These trees are very hardy and live thousands of years! Do a quick google search to read into the Ginkgo tree in-depth, it is very interesting! Hailed as “undoubtedly one of the most distinct and beautiful of all deciduous trees,” the ginkgo certainly stands out. Unique, fan-shaped leaves turn a stunning yellow color in the fall. It can tolerate many urban conditions including heat, air pollution, salt, and confined spaces. And it establishes easily.
