Deer don't eat Ginkgo leaves

In my guestbook someone wrote a message about an experience with deer and Ginkgo leaves. I'd like to share it with you:

USA, Coquille, OR
The deer won't eat the leaves!
It's 5' tall and only been in the ground a year. I'm hoping that it will survive the
wet climate. It's well drained. IF it survives, it should become a very popular tree,
as the deer leave it alone.
That in itself should should establish it as a 'tree to have'!

They have eaten the leaves on my Ginkgo trees, as well as the buds/branches, and bucks have rubbed the trunks till they die. Deer proof they are not!

They must have been very hungry, mostly deer don't find the Ginkgo very appealing.
The website of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences mentions the Ginkgo as a tree with a high degree of deer tolerance:
