Frost damage

I have a large ginkgo tree in my back yard in Kentucky. This year we had several days of freezing temperatures in early April, after the leaves had begun. The leaves died, and now, three weeks later, the entire tree is still full of brown leaves. Will there be a second set of leaves this year? Will the tree live without leaves? I love my large gingko, so beautiful in the fall with its yellow leaves. I hope it will survive.

Ginkgo bonsai and moss



I just acquired a bonsai Ginkgo tree about 25 yrs old perhaps.. it seems to have been heavily pruned to keep it short... and has moss on its trunk and branches... especially where it has been pruned. Although I seal the wounds.
Usually in Seattle, moss grows on everything, and is thought to be harmless. Does anyone care to comment on whether it is harming the tree? I have taken to removing it with a toothbrush, but really dont want to scrub too much. I would leave it, if it is not harmful.
Thanks.

Hoe Ginkgo boom te verhuizen

Hoi,
Wij hebben een mooie Gingko in onze tuin. Staat er nu zo'n 8 jaar. >Was 2 meter toen wij hem planten en is nu circa 6 meter hoog.
Wij gaan nu verhuizen en vragen ons af of we onze mooie boom kunnen meeverhuizen!
De boom staat in zandgrond met zuidwest ligging. Onze nieuwe tuin ligt ook op zuidwest.
Is het mogelijk en hoe pakken wij dit aan? Graag tips!!!!
Vraag van Ingrid.

"The ginkgo trees in Jingu Gaien, or the outer garden of Meiji Jingu have turned yellow. Not only the trees but also the street were tinged orange by the afternoon sun."

Oiling Ginkgo wooden cutting board?

Hello, I purchased a cutting board (chopping board) made of gingko wood when I was in Japan a few years ago. I wonder if I should be oiling the board like I would with other wooden cutting boards? (The information that came with the board was in Japanese, so I’m not sure what it said!).
Thanks and great job on a very interesting website.
