Answer: Ginkgo trees are slow growing so don't be too quick to prune it back. They look a bit gangly at first, but they become graceful with age. Your tree may need staking to encourage upright growth. Once it becomes established you can expect it to grow about a foot a year. If you find misplaced branches or a damaged branch, you can prune in the spring just as new growth begins. Young growth can be brittle, so prune carefully!
