Why plant Autumn Gold Maidenhair Tree?
Whether or not Ginkgo biloba supplements are a good investment in your health is debatable, but whether the Ginkgo biloba tree is a good investment for your landscape is beyond question! This majestic shade tree will line your driveway, shade your deck, or accent your home in style, providing many years of enjoyment. Autumn Gold Ginkgo’s fan-shaped leaves will delight you in fall when they turn brilliant yellow and drop all at once. Your family might hold a friendly wager on when they’ll fall! The ultimate legacy tree, the Ginkgo tree is capable of living hundreds—even thousands—of years, so plant it where it may live out a long and glorious life.
With no living relatives, the Ginkgo is one of the oldest trees in the world. Sometimes called “a living fossil," it appears unchanged from fossils found 270 million years ago. When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, six Ginkgo trees were found to be the only surviving plants. Soon after the blast, they began to bud without any major deformities and are still alive today. Thus, Japan regards the Ginkgo as “the bearer of hope."

It turns an incredible clear yellow color in fall, putting on a wonderful display. It’s free of pests, and don’t worry about any horror stories you may have heard about its foul-smelling fruit—we only select male varieties, so they will not produce any fruit.
Hardiness Zones: 4-8
How To Plant Autumn Gold Maidenhair Tree
In recent years, Ginkgo biloba (the natural supplement) became well-known for its supposed ability to improve short term memory...and…what was I saying? On the other hand, the actual Ginkgo tree is best known for its unique fan-shaped leaves. And, these trees are incredibly easy to grow. You can plant them and forget about them...unless you don't want to forget. Then, you might want to take your supplements.
But why male Ginkgo trees? Female Ginkgo trees produce a fruit that, as it matures and falls to the ground, can emit a rather unpleasant odor. When dealing only with male trees, you don't have to deal with this foul-smelling fruit, as the males won't produce fruit! Ginkgo trees like full sun and tolerate a wide range of soils, including well-drained to dry soils. The Ginkgo tree has absolutely no pest problems and they are pollution-tolerant, making them ideal for city dwellings. While you'll often see them planted along city streets, this isn’t necessarily the best location for this particular tree. While the Ginkgo is slow-growing, it does mature to a rather large size, which might be too big for a curbside planting. You can, however, plant it in your yard. Then, simply sit back and admire your Ginkgo tree as you try to remember where you put your reading glasses.
How To Water
Water regularly after initial planting. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.
How To Fertilize
Each fall, feed your Maidenhair Bower & Branch Elements Starter Plant Food - this will give your tree all the nutrients it needs.
How To Prune
Pruning isn’t really necessary on this slow-growing, long lived beauty.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
