Can dogs eat Ginkgo seeds?

I have a lovely ginkgo tree in my back yard. I have 2 small dogs that are eating the fruit when it falls. Is this poisonous? Can it harm the dogs?

Treatment of Ginkgo saplings in winter

Hello ginkgo friends, I have questions regarding how I should treat my saplings this winter. They, being started in April, are anywhere from 4 to 8 inches. Some with much and others with little foliage. We live in Montana and the winter is descending. Most of them live in 6 inch pots a few are in larger pots (12’’-18”). Should I plant them outside with or without mulching? Or at all? Should I leave them in their pots and wait another year? Or two?
I appreciate any feed back or direction towards which I could find answers. Expediency is crucial I would have asked sooner but I have such a difficult time with computers. Any one in the near vicinity is welcome to one of these starts I have about fifty were started in april after having harvested the seed last fall.

Growing Ginkgo in the Himalayas, India

I have a place which is 6200 ft above sea level in the Himalayas in India, where I am growing medicinal plants.
I am very interested in growing the Gingko Biloba tree, but there is unfortunately, no information at all available in India about it, inspite of he fact that the climatic conditions would suit the propogation of this tree.
Would someone be able to guide me on how I can best go about growing this tree?
Thank you and anticipating an early response.
