Ginkgo trees in Salt Lake Valley, Utah

Posted by Watcher in a blog post: "Today, the Ginkgo is separated by its nearest living relatives by roughly 300 million years or more- about as distantly-related to other trees time-wise as we are to turtles or birds. It’s alone in the world on a scale almost unimaginable, a tree out of time. To a tree-geek it’s almost like a tree from another world, or an alternate universe."

Leaves of Ginkgo trees fall at the same time




A weird experience, Ginkgo leaves often fall in a short period. In 1 or 2 days or even in 1 or 2 hours! Video by TheGingerChick: "All the Ginkgo trees lose their leaves at the same time, like it's raining leaves."

See many videos of the sudden leaf drop of the Ginkgo tree on the
video playlist on my website.


And/or read the poem "The Consent" by Howard Nemerov on my website (with photos) .
