Red Cross plants Ginkgo tree, survivor Hiroshima bombing

A descendant of a Ginkgo biloba tree that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 was planted at a ceremony at the International Committee of the Red Cross headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland,  today.
This tree is the first sapling of the 200-year-old Hiroshima survivor tree to be planted in Switzerland.
The seeds and saplings of a 200-year-old Ginkgo tree that survived the explosion have been nurtured and protected over the intervening decades and are now being planted worldwide.
