Interested because: I love Ginkgos
Message: Estoy feliz por haber encontrado su pagina. Me encantan los Ginkgos y me gustaria encontrar semillas para plantar unos arboles. He encontrado arboles en los parques y en las calles pero nunca he visto las semillas. En el jardin de una amiga nacio un arbol y ella no sabe como llego la semilla. Ahora que he leido su estudio, entiendo como tuvo lugar. Pero, donde encontrare semillas? Lo felicito por su estudio, gracias por su gran aporte a la propagacion de este hermoso arbol
Perdoname por no usar las tildes.

Interested because: my favorite tree
Message: Thank you so much for your dedication to an awesome tree, I read about your website in the New York Times. The ginko has been my favorite tree since I saw it in Longwood Gardens, covered with gold leaves, from then on I visited the tree to watch it in all seasons. 15 years later I am a landscape designer- which I undoubtedly owe to a single tree- and now I plant ginko trees in almost every project I install, my thank you to a beautiful and definitely sacred tree.

Interested because: al 21 jaar een Ginkgo Biloba in de voortuin
Message: al 21 jaar staat er een Ginkgo Biloba in onze voortuin. De boom komt al boven ons huis uit. Elk jaar kijk ik uit naar de bloei, maar dit is nog niet gebeurd. Door het zachte najaar kon dit jaar de boom mooi goudgeel kleuren voordat de bladeren afvielen. De voorgaande jaren vielen ze meestal af voordat ze goudgeel kleurden. Dan vroor het een nacht stevig en vielen de bladeren in 1 keer af.
Een mooie boom!!!

Interested because: Bad odor
Message: Peace onto you.
I walk to work everyday. As the weather changed I began to smell this bad odor as I walked pass this tree. When I got to work I brought a leave to show my co worker. I asked her did she know the name of the tree. Also told her I picked up one of the seed but it had a very very bad odor.
She agreed with the smell but could not tell me the name of the tree. Today to my surprise walking back from the post office I noticed the same tree. I walked into the chamber of commerce office which was just a few feet away and ask the manager did she know the name of the tree; she did. Told me Ginko Biloba. So I came home put the name in search and found you. Thank you for the understanding. I will use your site to try to grow a couple of seeds I picked up with it's bad odor,smile

Interested because: My wife's excitement
Message: smilie My wife of 19 yrs came home today super excited. We moved to my hometown in Ohio last year and while in a park in town she discovered a Ginko tree with fruit on the ground. Much to the surprise of the neighbors, she began to collect the "smelly" fruit. She brought them home, cleaned them, and fried them. Quite tasty. Being a little nervous about eating something I'm not used to, I looked on the internet. Your site is most informative. Could you tell me, should the fruit be eaten in moderation, or is it completely safe. Thanks. Oh, by the way I forgot to mention my wife is from Korea. She had been looking for Ginko trees since she came to the USA 19 years ago. Thanks again.

KN (Australia) The content and topics presented in this Website are amazingly excellent. It was a shame that this valuable and sacred tree was sometimes turned into chopping board as seen in one of photos.

NICE website. I'm researching ginkgo trees because I want to plant one but now, I see several that I 'must' have including Variegata. Very curious about how you gathered the info about which ginkgo is where. Tiiu who gardens in upstate NY and Maryland.

I am from New Zealand where I have a first year Gingko Biloba growing. It looks very healthy but I do not know if it is male or female..back to the birds and the do I tell the difference?! I presume that the male does not have nuts( it gets worse !!) But seriously....I would also like to know the uses of the leaves and how to use them and when to harvest them for each purpose.

Impressive website. I'm from Coshocton ,Ohio, USA and across the street from an old Carnagie Library is a hugh Female Ginkgo that a friend from Pittsburg, PA recognized and photograghed. I hope she'll send the picture to this site. I never realized they are so unique and old.

In Zwitserland kocht ik een gouden Ginkgobroche en ben me er in gaan verdiepen.

I was working on an art collage using the beautiful papers leftover from consuming a box of Japanese sweets(wagashi).I googled Japanese motifs and found your page on gingko. You have done such a great job on compiling examples of the gingko motif in asian art. Now my art piece will be all the better. A million thanks

Very informative site. I myself have 5 'Autumn Gold' planted in my yard. Being a landscape designer I always try to include a Ginkgo when there is ample space. Keep up the good work on this site.

Your website is facinating and beautiful - much like the tree itself. I recently bought 2 trees and was looking for advice on their care. I have spent hours discovering so much more.
Congratulations and many thanks.

No tengo palabras para calificar su increible estudio sobre el ginkgo biloba. Su sitio es maravilloso y lo llena a uno de amor por ese maravilloso árbol, planta, regalo, inspiración. Soy una practicante de homeopatía en Costa Rica, América Central. No he visto ni un sólo árbol de ginkgo aquí. Espero poder tocar algún día uno de éstos. Muchas gracias por todo lo que me enseñó.

Leuke site, ik was op zoek naar plaatjes van de boom, we hebben er net twee gekocht in Boskoop voor ons huis in Monster, ze zijn heel mooi en al best wel groot, ik schat toch wel een meter of 4. Ik hoop maar dat ze mooi aanslaan.

Hi there. I adopted a small ginkgo tree in a pot the other day. I think it has been a bit dry, but I should be able to make it happy again.
It will eventually get somewhere good to go in the ground. It's joined the collection of trees in pots that will one day start my own forest.
Great web site.

What a absolutely fabulous site. I have been back several times and still haven't been able to read or see it all. We (my Homemakers Club) in Alabama are doing a project with Ginkgo trees. Once we are into the project a little more, I will write and tell you what we are doing. I love this site. Thank you.
