The Ginkgo biloba tree, typically known only as ginkgo, is native to China and has become a popular ornamental and shade tree worldwide, revered for its distinctive, fan-shaped leaves. It is extraordinary in several respects. The genus first appeared in the Permian era, some 250 million years ago, and the biloba species is relatively unchanged from that time, making it a true “living fossil.” It is also exceptionally large and long-lived, with specimens reaching up to 120 feet in height and over 1,000 years in age. Other names for it include fossil tree, maidenhair tree, kew tree, bai guo ye, and yinhsing.
