Ginkgo tree(银杏树)

Ginkgo tree, also called maidenhair tree, is a rare tree in the world. It is the only survival breed of the ancient Ginkgopsida, and for this reason, botanists regard it as "living fossil" in the plant kingdom. It is also one of the four world ornamental trees, together with cedar, araucaria and pseudolarix.
