Ginkgo

Tree Description:

0-016 Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is a dioecious tree (separate males and females) with fruit production limited to female trees like this one. Normally the fruits emit a very offensive odor, but examination of this specimen showed that its fruits are much less (but still!) odiferous. Ginkgoes are actually conifers with broad leaves, and they can live for more than 1000 years.
