A talisman for resilience, healing & longevity.
The Wise Elder - Ginkgo trees are considered symbols of enduring love and hope as they can live for thousands of years. Ginkgo (sometimes spelled gingko) has a botanical history spanning 270 million years making it the world’s oldest surviving tree species.
One of Ginkgo’s hallmarks is its remarkable resistance to disease and stress. Considered by many to possess miraculous regenerative healing powers, and symbolic of hope and love, Ginkgo is often associated with longevity & resilience.
Ginkgo Biloba, sometimes called Maidenhair Tree, is a species of tree native to China. It has been cultivated since early human history and is still commonly planted today.
Ginkgo trees have been cultivated in China for centuries. Some trees that have been planted at temples are thought to be over 1500 years old. Ginkgo is also very common in Korea, and Japan, and has been planted there since the 14th century. Ginkgo has been cultivated in Europe for around 300 years and in North America for over 200 years.
Ginkgo trees adapt well to urban environments. They tolerate pollution and confined soil spaces, they also rarely suffer disease or issues with pests. Ginkgo trees can also be grown in miniature as bonsai or penjing.
Ginkgo Fossil Record
Ginkgo is a living fossil, closely resembling its ancestral species known only from fossil records. The oldest records of ginkgo trees are over 290 million years old. Ginkgo trees today closely resemble their fossils from around 170 million years ago.
Ginkgo trees and other species of the genus were once widespread throughout the world. However, throughout time, the predecessors to the modern ginkgo tree declined in diversity until only a couple species were left. Their range also shrank, and around 2 or 3 millions years ago, ginkgo fossils disappeared from the fossil record everywhere except in a small area in central China. This is where the modern species survived. The ginkgo tree that we know today is the last living species of its kind.
For centuries, ginkgo was actually thought to be extinct in the wild. There are only two small areas in Eastern China that were thought to have wild ginkgo trees, however these trees may have actually been planted and preserved by Chinese monks over a period of around 1000 years.
In Southwestern China, there are several old-growth trees that may also be wild. There is evidence that the largest and oldest of these trees may be older than the surrounding human settlements.
The resiliency and vitality that ginkgo is known for is not a title given lightly. When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima during World War II, six ginkgo trees near the centre of the explosion survived. Although damaged, these trees quickly became healthy again and are still alive and growing there today.
