Ginkgo biloba 'Fastigiata'

This refers to many upright narrow clones. Cannot be tied to a specific origin.

Generally, these forms are narrower than the species. Branches growing more vertical than normal.

This male cultivar of Ginkgo is practically pestfree, resistant to storm damage, and casts dense shade. It makes a durable street tree with a narrow crown spreading to about 12 or 15 feet. A good tree for growing in a restricted overhead space. Other narrow upright cultivars include Princeton Sentry and Fairmont . Ginkgo tolerates most soil, including compacted, and alkaline. The tree is easily transplanted and has a vivid yellow fall color which is second to none in brilliance, even in the south. However, leaves fall quickly and the fall color show is short. Unlike the species, the tree does not set fruit.
