Gingko biloba (Maidenhair Tree) - Deciduous tree that grows 35-50 ft. tall. Good for street or lawn. Extremely long-lived and not usually bothered by insects or diseases. Very tolerant of air pollution, heat, and acid or alkaline conditions. Leaves turn golden yellow in fall and drop quickly creating a golden carpet beneath. Female trees produce messy, fleshy, ill-smelling fruit in quantity. Some recommended male varieties include 'Autumn Gold', Golden Colonnade', and 'Presidential Gold'.
