The Ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba) is an especially fascinating tree – she is a living fossil, first appearing in the Early Jurassic period, and currently only grows under human cultivation – though two small populations of semi-wild specimens have been found in the Zhejiang province of China – but high genetic uniformity suggests they were originally planted and cared for by humans.
She is incredibly resilient and tenacious. Six trees growing within 2 kilometers of the 1945 atom bomb explosion in Hiroshima, Japan, were among the few living things able to survive the blast.
The Ginkgo is the official tree of Tokyo, Japan.
The Ginkgo tree symbolizes resilience, tenacity, longevity, endurance, and the bearer of hope.
