This male Ginkgo, if precisely mea- sured, would rank about 14th largest in Pennsylvania as judged from pabig trees.com.  In 2019 its trunk circumfer- ence was 13 feet 10 inches; its height was approximately 80 feet; its spread approximately 72 feet.  

 

This amazing species has exceptional resistance to weather, pests and pollu- tion. Ginkgo was one of the few living things to survive in the blast zone of the atomic bomb that fell on Hiro- shima August 6, 1945.
