Hello,

I want to suggest that you add one tree to your list of ginkgoes in Illinois, USA. This male ginkgo is at Lighthouse Landing Park in Evanston, IL. It was (according to the city arborist) planted around 1885. I just calculated its diameter at 104cm, which is pretty large!

Anyway, I thought you'd like to know.

Thank you fo your wonderful website!

Thanks so much for your fantastic website over the years. It’s a great source of information and growing tips for those of us lucky enough to have Ginkgo trees in our yards. Although I have male trees, they’re grafted males and nature finds a way to produce about 100 seeds yearly from two Autumn Gold Ginkgo trees. Here on the North Shore Eastern Long Island area, my trees are growing very fast and
happily taking over the entire yard. I planted one of the seeds in 2010, and it too has grown to a height of about 10 feet in 9 years and is perfectly shaped,
straight, and strong without ever being pruned in any
way. Since it seems to bloom later in spring and drop
its leaves later in the fall...about 2 weeks later...I am assuming it’s a female tree. That’s fine with me because this tree has been overly cloned and the growth of female trees should be encouraged.
My Asian neighbors happily take the excess seeds i have now, and the neighborhood waits for seeds to try growing one in their yard. I’m happy to see this beautiful tree spread and prosper where it wasn’t grown before and hope this lessens the environmental stress being placed on this tree now because of the preference for male trees. By the way, the soil here is well drained, loamy and rich, does not have much clay, and the many farms, tree farms, and wineries, have a very high production rate.

Já plantei diversos Ginkgos em Sorocaba, cidade a cerca de 90Km de São Paulo, Brasil. Apesar do clima subtropical muitas vão ido muito bem. Vou tentar enviar foto da mais alta.

Amazing website! Just purchased a small Ginkgo bonsai and found this page while searching for info on care, shaping and pruning. Ended up watching the entire "Sea in the seed" movie that you linked to from your page. Lots of interesting information on your site. I'm sure I will be back many times as I attempt to learn more about Ginkgo as a bonsai. Thanks for all the work you did putting this site together!

Thank you, Charles

Hello Cor,
Thanks for your wonderful website which I look at often and also use in teaching horticulture and arboriculture students. I often refer people interested in Ginkgo to "The Ginkgo Pages" also. I propagate Ginkgo trees from seed every year at home. I collect seed from trees I know and trees I find in my travels in autumn. I have about 200 young Ginkgo trees which I give to friends & sell to interested people. Here it is mid summer and we had 47.7 degrees last Thursday and up to 49.5 degrees in other parts of South Australia. Although some leaves on some Ginkgo trees burn in this extreme heat many Ginkgo trees come through this hot weather unscathed with no burnt foliage. Our summers are very dry - a hot Mediterannean type climate. Gingko trees are becoming more popular as street trees in Adelaide as well as in parks and landscaping projects. I thought your readers may be interested in hearing just how heat tolerant established Ginkgo trees are. (Young Ginkgo trees need shelter/shade and plenty of water to establish in our climate). Kind regards, John

Today (Nov-11-2018) I opened my eyes to the Ginkgo. Yesterday I started to be interested in names of trees.
Borrowed a book from a friend and the first tree I saw was a Ginkgo. My friend told me that there were some Ginkgo trees near my neighbourghood. I went out and found 15 young planted Ginkgo Trees in a circle. I started to pick fallen leaves. Went home and came back. Then I saw seeds and picked around 50. Started to navigate in Internet looking for info and found this web. Thanks! Deep emotional connection. Vibrating day. Well see what is coming next...

Ik geniet erg van uw website en mijn zaadjes liggen al in de groentela.
Heeft u ook informatie over het toppen van de Ginkgo? Onze achterburen hebben voorzichtig gevraagd of wij hem zouden willen toppen. Nu meen ik ergens gelezen te hebben dat je de zijtakken al beter niet kunt terugsnoeien en daarom ben ik bang dat het toppen helemaal taboe is. Met vriendelijke groet.

Thanks for a great website! I serendipitously found 3 large fruiting females in our area and hope to grow lots of seedings for pre-bonsai.
