The Ginkgo tree is considered one of the most beautiful ornamental trees, due to its vibrant yellow fall color. While beautiful, this tree is also a great choice as a shade tree due to its large size and spread. It is a very hardy tree, able to tolerate many urban conditions ranging from heat, confined spaces and air pollution. The tree is also considered a living fossil, with the earliest leaf fossils dating from 270 million years ago.
