Ginkgo Biloba Spiegazione

Ginkgo Biloba has been known as the oldest living species of trees with its roots as far as 270 million years in the world. Even the single living tree can be as old as 3000 years or so, one is reported in Shandong province in China. They can be as tall as 165 feet.

The Ginkgo Biloba tree has long angular branches, with strong deep rooted roots which make it stable in extreme snow and windy conditions. A combination of resistance to disease, insect-resistant wood and the ability to form aerial roots and sprouts makes ginkgos very long-lived.

The tree is not ever green, the leaves turn deep yellow during winters and fall considerably, in winters it is no more than bare branches but in spring and summers it is in full bloom and have the pollination as well. The leaves are fan shaped which have dichotomous venation.

The leaves are usually 5-10 cm (2-4 inches), but sometimes up to 15 cm (6 inches) long. The trees have separate sexes, male and female. They fertilize through pollination.

Though the birth rate is very slow, but their long living property has been able to make it survive through thick and thin. Their strength and resistance came in notice specifically in Hiroshima, Japan where four specimens of trees were found even after the drastic blast of an atom bomb.
