Ginkgo trees are strange and wonderful and elegant. They’re considered to be a living fossil as the oldest tree species on the planet.

These trees are long-lived, highly resistant to disease, pests, fire, and air pollution. Thriving in harsh city environments where most trees will not survive, the most common tree on Manhattan sidewalks is ginkgo.

Many health benefits have been attributed to the extracts of the Ginkgo plant – the most  well-known is the perceived ability to improve short term memory.
