Ginkgos are deciduous trees valued for their unique fan-shaped green leaves that change color in fall to a brilliant yellow. Ginkgos in general are very tolerant of different soil types, resistant to insect attack and diseases, and tolerate heat and air pollution. With its ability to survive such adverse conditions, it is no wonder that this ancient tree has become popular in modern times. Ginkgo biloba 'Autumn Gold' is a slow-growing, fruitless male cultivar with a symmetrical, broadly spreading upright habit. It can be effectively used as a street, lawn, or specimen tree.
