The Q&A Archives: Male Gingko Tree

Question: Do you carry Gingko trees, what kind, how big and how much for a 5 gallon?

Any advice you would like to give me on maintenance and speed of growth. I understand it is a slow growing tree.

Is autumn gold a male tree?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Answer: All named varieties are male trees - look for 'Autumn Gold', 'Fairmount', 'Princeton Sentry' and 'Saratoga' and you'll be assured of getting a male tree.

Plant your trees in full sunshine in average garden soil and water regularly during the spring and summer months. Gingko trees are considered slow-growing; expect less than 1 foot per year.
